Session LanguageEE
ScopeThis session has two scopes. One is CSEP and the other is the role of SSE. (1) The Collaboratory for the Study of Earthquake Predictability (CSEP) has expanded over the years to many different testing areas hosted at multiple testing centers. One of which is the Japan testing center at the University of Tokyo, operated in collaboration with GFZ Potsdam. Hundreds of earthquake forecast models have been submitted to CSEP and are being tested. We propose to create new areas of activity for CSEP, namely targeted experiments that cannot be conducted with the current CSEP software system. We solicit contributions addressing forecasting models, forecast testing problems, new ideas for CSEP experiments, possibilities of further CSEP developments, ways of expanding CSEP into the hazard and risk domain, and more general views on the forecasting problem. This is aimed at fostering the discussion in the community about further goals of earthquake forecasting experiments. (2) Several recent great and large earthquakes have been spatially or temporally correlated with slow slip events (SSE) on plate boundary faults. For example, events in Japan (Tohoku-Oki), Chile (Iquique), and now New Zealand (Kaikoura) have been immediately preceded or have triggered subsequent SSE. In this session we invite contributions which investigate if and how SSE can trigger large earthquakes using such methods as physics based modeling (e.g., Rate and State Friction, seismicity simulators, stress modeling, etc.), empirical modeling or observations (e.g., ETAS, rate changes, etc.), paleoseismology or any study providing insight into this problem.
