The 2019-2021 Gofar Transform Fault Earthquake Prediction Experiment

A new phase of seismic experiments on Gofar Transform Fault begins this week as we set sail on the R/V Atlantis to deploy seismometers and dredge for rocks. This project builds on the successful 2007-2008 Gofar-Discovery-Quebrada experiment (McGuire et al., 2012; Roland et al. 2012). Lead PI for this NSF-funded project is Margaret Boettcher, with co-PIs Emily Roland, Jessica Warren, Jeff McGuire, John Collins, Mark Behn, Wenyuan Fan, and Chris German.
