2009.10.15-Great California ShakeOut

As part of the 2009 ShakeOut, SCEC is conducting an earthquake response exercise, which will be coordinated with the USGS table-top exercises. The SCEC Earthquake Response Content Management System (ERCMS) will be activated and tested for post-earthquake response planning and coordination. Contact us if there are issues related to the SCEC ERCMS.

At this page, you can join in SCEC earthquake response activities for the 2009 ShakeOut. Greg Beroza and some of the SCEC group leaders are coordinating the science planning and activities, and we use the SCEC ERCMS to coordinate response plans with USGS and other partners.

For general science planning and coordination, join the discussion forums.

ShakeOut Response Planning - Operational Group


Post injects as per the schedule of events in the script.

Keep the exchange of information going on the website.

Conduct conference call at 11:15 for scientific coordination of SCEC activities.

Coordinate scientific response between agencies and among SCEC research groups.

ShakeOut Response Planning - Geology Group


1. Geology group leaders get in contact via cell telephone and satellite telephone to coordinate response (~10:15am)

2. J. Dolan will participate in coordination conference call at 11:15am.  At this call he will converse with USGS to coordinate responses.

3. Travel to field (2pm-4pm), make simulated observations. Call in observations in real time to Erik Pounders (4 to 5 pm).

ShakeOut Response Planning - Geodesy Group

These are the activities we plan to undertake on the day of ShakeOut 2008, generally in chronological order:

Using available information (regarding magnitude, rupture length, surface offsets, etc.) following the earthquake we will generate expected displacements at campaign and continuous GPS sites and refine these predictions as additional information become available. We will make a similar map of observed offsets at continuous GPS sites once these are available from the USGS or another source .
