Confluence Retirement

Due to the feedback from stakeholders and our commitment to not adversely impact USGS science activities that Confluence supports, we are extending the migration deadline to January 2023.

In an effort to consolidate USGS hosted Wikis, myUSGS’ Confluence service is targeted for retirement. The official USGS Wiki and collaboration space is now SharePoint. Please migrate existing spaces and content to the SharePoint platform and remove it from Confluence at your earliest convenience. If you need any additional information or have any concerns about this change, please contact Thank you for your prompt attention to this matter.

In July's Scientist's Challenge, Kate Allstadt and Brennah McVey from the Landslide and Earthquake Hazards Programs present their challenge of making a diverse database accessible!

In this cross-disciplinary research, seismic wave data is applied to processes besides earthquakes, like landslides, debris flows, and floods. But what is the best way to catalog these diverse data types for efficient discovery and analysis?

There are many ways you can contribute to this challenge: suggest ideas or recommendations directly as a comment to this forum (you must be logged in), email Kate or Brennah directly at and, or email and the CDI coordinators will pass on the information.
