This workshop will focus on computational models addressing crustal deformation associated with earthquake faulting with particular emphasis on (1) the stress field over the seismic cycle and (2) variations in behavior across the upper crust, lower crust, and upper mantle. The workshop will include two days of hands-on tutorials (June 26-27) followed by three days of science talks and discussions (June 28-30). The science portion includes talks on case studies from particular faulting environments and on key rheological behavior with discussions of current obstacles to crustal deformation modeling.
See Tutorial Information for more information on the tutorials.
This five day workshop will be held Monday, June 26 - Friday, June 30 on the campus of the Colorado School of Mines, Golden, Colorado.
