Brian Sherrod – FY18 summary, FY19 plans

More work on Olympic Peninsula uplift in FY19.  FY18 work with UW. FY19 large paleoseismology project between the GSHG and ESC.  Janet Watt's work.  Cascadia workshop in Seattle, similar to past N. California 

Joan Gomberg – SZ4D RCNs, SZ Communications Plan update

Lydia Staisch (10-15 min) - Powell Center project overall

Lydia outlined topics of four workshops over the next few years.  The first one will be in March, focused on the earthquake cycle broadly. She also updated us on work on the development of the CR database.

All – other general news


FY18 summary, FY19 plans:

Maureen Walton – Powell Center March workshop

Maureen is new PC post-doc.  March workshop in Fort Collins

Scott Bennett – backarc and Olympic Mtn geologic studies

Described FY18 Canyon River fault mapping, including 2 trenches.  In FY19 will publish SIM conveying FY18 results, analyze new lidar and do some Coulomb modeling.  

new 3D seismic velocity model

Andy  Cyr – Landslide Mendenhall proposal

4 Mendenhalls will be funded by the NHMA.  Please advertise!!!!

Chris Goldfinger - Thoughts on automated turbidite analysis 

Joan Gomberg – Land-level change Mendenhall proposal, turbidite analysis update

Ruth Harris – Tsunami Powell Center Oct 1-5 workshop (focused on Alaskan tsunamis)
