Interdisciplinary Focus Areas

Interdisciplinary research will be organized into seven science focus areas:

  1. Unified Structural Representation (USR)
  2. Fault and Rupture Mechanics (FARM)
  3. Stress and Deformation Over Time (SDOT)
  4. Earthquake Forecasting and Predictability (EFP)
  5. Ground Motion Prediction (GMP)
  6. Southern San Andreas Fault Evaluation (SoSAFE)
  7. Earthquake Engineering Implementation Interface (EEII)

High-priority objectives are listed below for each of the seven interdisciplinary focus areas on the linked pages above. Collaboration within and across focus areas is strongly encouraged.
