    John McRaney called and left me a voicemail; I've called him back and we have now spoken.  I've also verified I can access the system with the instructions Tom Jordan sent yesterday.  (Or else I wouldn't be posting this...)

    I'll be monitoring things from NSF; must drop off in 20 minutes and can be back in about 90 minutes.

    We ought to see about urgent computing needs - Phil, I see you're on - Rob too, perhaps we can fill out a discussion here on what we ought to be doing?

    For real time telemetry we need systems set up for real time (most new recording systems have this capability) and the antenna. Telemetry must be tested to make sure we have good communication, in some areas telemetry will not be possible so sites should be chosen with that in mind. We will need to coordinate with SCSN (Egill) to get the appropriate IP addresses so they can pull the data off of the recorders.

    Jess, Rowena, can we get this started?  Shall we contact UNAVCO for campaign instruments?

    Hi Tom, Greg-

    Jessica and I don't seem to be able to create a new thread - we can edit the geodesy coordination page and can add on to the thread from last year, but that is it.  Any ideas?

     

    Also, we can't attach kml or kmz files again.

     

    Thanks,

    R

       We should contact IRIS for their RAMP instruments, and the Broadband instrument center as well.  I will try to raise Jamie Steidl for that (he's not logged on, so they may have lost power).

    UCR has 5 RefTek 130, 6 channel seismometers, 5 EpiSensors, and 5 L4 (from PBIC) sensors. They are currently installed at UCR campus, so they will be pulled and moved today. In addition, we have 3 students who are available to help and I will have messages out to other students. QCN also has approximately 50 MEMS sensors that can be installed in buildings, if we have volunteers with computers.

    Thanks for initiating this Elizabeth.  What do we need for the real-time telemetry?

    Nancy King's GPS vectors make it clear that this is almost certainly a large San Andreas event.  Let's start coordinating the earthquake geology response to get the maximum scientific return!

    We're trying to separate conversations by threads. John's should have been posted under "SCEC Inter-organization Coordination", not as separate thread.

    To get out and collect seismic data we will need a count of instruments available for a response. In addition, we need to define our priorities. Please reply with the instruments you have available and any voluteer help or other supplies. It is likely we will need to have several arrays due to the large size of this event. Some priorities I propose are getting real-time telemetry equipment out along the entire rupture to capture aftershocks with data going in to SCSN and use additional instruments to get a line across the fault.

     I agree with Tom.  I will initiate threads for each group now.

    I tried Greg's cell phone with no response, tried Whitcomb's office without success.  Reached Eva Zanzerkia and she will search for Greg A who may be in meeting with AC Geo.

     Rockwell, I see that you're online, can you start this thread?

    Let's try to organize threads by group to keep conversations separable; i.e., one thread each for "Seismology Coordination", "Geodesy Coordination", and "Geology Coordination". The best way to see what's going on is to view the comments "threaded and collapsed".

    Looks to be a strike-slip event - most likely on the San Andreas given the initial epicenter.

    At this point I;'d like to ask the disciplinary group leaders of geology, seismology, geodesy, and IT to start threads coordinating each group's scientific response to this event.

    I just called Greg Anderson at NSF to request funds to collect perishable data.  He was not in, left a voice mail.  John

    Recommend that Geology coordinator set up new thread "SCEC Geology Coordination".

    I'm attaching a kmz file containing known geodetic benchmarks and their history of occupation, provided by Duncan Agnew.

     

    As was the case last year, we have to add a fake "extension" to the file since this web page will not allow kml or kmz files.  I've added _.txt, you just have to remove it once downloaded.

    Seems this one is large enough that there should be a surface rupture. I would like to start a geology coordination thread but am unsure whether to do so here or as a separate thread. If separate it is not apparent to me how to do that on the 'home' page. Please advise. I would like to be able to maintain a discussion as we learn more about what is happening.

    I need to go offline for the next 90 minutes. I will check back in at 12.
