I'll be participating in the Fall 2017 AGU meeting in New Orleans! I am involved in convening one session this year: New Insights on the Cascadia Subduction Zone from Offshore and Amphibious Studies. Talks will be on Thursday, December 14 from 10:20 - 12:20 and 13:40 - 15:40, and we have a poster session Friday morning, December 15 from 8:00 - 12:20. I'll also be presenting my research (Amphibious Shear Velocity Structure of the Cascadia Subduction Zone) during the Friday morning poster session.
I'll be attending the CIDER pre-AGU Workshop where I'll be presenting on my group's research from the 2017 program entitled "Hunting for slow-slip events at Cascadia". This research will also be presented in a poster during AGU on Friday morning in the session New Insights on the Structure of the Cascadia Subduction Zone from Offshore and Amphibious Studies.
Following the M4.1 Delaware earthquake that occurred on November 30, 2017 I was part of a team of scientists from five institutions (Carnegie, University of Maryland, Lamont, USGS, and Lehigh University) that deployed seismometers close to the epicenter in Delaware and New Jersey to monitor for aftershocks following the event. These will be important for understanding why this relatively rare east coast earthquake occurred. Within 24 hours of the earthquake, we deployed 18 new instruments. The instruments will remain in the ground for several weeks. Local media covered the deployment of these instruments, and I gave a brief interview to explain what we were doing; these can be found here.
I'll be attending the 2017 OBS Workshop in Portland, ME. I'll be presenting a poster entitled "Shoreline-crossing shear-velocity structure of the Juan de Fuca plate and Cascadia subduction zone from surface waves and receiver functions" as well as a brief pop-up talk on a new matlab based code package that will be released shortly entitled "Automated Noise Analysis and Tilt and Compliance Removal Designed for OBS".
