2009 Workshop on Numerical Modeling of Crustal Deformation and Earthquake Faulting

Category: Workshop

The focus of this gathering is on computational models addressing crustal deformation with an emphasis on the seismic cycle across single and multiple events. The workshop will blend science talks on case studies from particular faulting environments and on key rheological behavior with discussions of current obstacles to crustal deformation modeling.

As in previous years, topics will span a variety of computational issues including how to go from a geologic structural model to a finite-element model, various numerical issues such as choosing discretization schemes and meshing strategies, and consideration of different bulk and fault zone rheologies. Another explicit goal of this workshop is to provide basic training in the installation, use, and customization of existing, freely available modeling software for crustal deformation. There will be dedicated time throughout the workshop for hands-on interaction with other users and developers of the primary existing tools.

This workshop will be held from June 22-26, 2009, in Golden, Colorado on the campus of the Colorado School of Mines. The first four days (Monday-Thursday) will be a mixture of science talks, discussion, and hands-on tutorials. The fifth day (Friday) will be dedicated to informal tutorials and collaboration. We are able to provide reimbursement for a portion of the costs incurred for registered attendees with official appointments at U.S. institutions. There are no registration fees. Registration will be limited to 60 attendees.
