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.

Erin Wirth updated everyone on the M9 project, noting there are 2 recently published papers on M9 ground motion simulations (see Frankel et al., Wirth et al.). The simulation output is available on DesignSafe. The City of Seattle has revised design recommendations for tall buildings in the Seattle basin based on their results (see OFR report).  The M9 Project Final Workshop will be Tuesday, March 12, 2019 @ UW; contact Erin if interested in attending.  Erin's presentation may be downloaded (see paperclip at the top of the page).

Tentatively we will have another online meeting toward the end of January and an in-person meeting before or after the SSA meeting in Seattle, in April, 2019.
