Opportunity 16: 3D Geology of the Coast Ranges-Great Valley Boundary Region and the Associated Seismic Hazard to the Sacramento-San Joaquin Delta, California

We are constructing a 3D geologic map of the Sacramento-San Joaquin Delta region to support quantitative seismic hazard analyses of that important
region. We are looking for a postdoc who will combine surface geologic
mapping with additional techniques to contribute to that effort. The
specific postdoctoral project is flexible, but some possibilities include:
geologic mapping combined with potential-field geophysics to better
constrain the distribution, orientation, and activity of valley-range
boundary structures; or Quaternary surficial deposits mapping combined with detailed geochemical dating to constrain uplift associated with blind faults beneath the Delta; or geologic mapping of Delta-bounding uplifted Cenozoic and Mesozoic rocks combined with paleobarometry to constrain deformation rates on Delta-margin structures. The postdoc will be expected to participate as an active team member in construction of the overall 3D map, particularly with respect to integrating the findings of their own research.

Opportunity 17: Forearc Structure and Earthquake and Tsunami Hazards of the Southern Alaska-Eastern Aleutian Subduction Zone

Subduction zones pose some of the greatest earthquake and tsunami hazards to the United States. The structure of subduction zones largely controls the
generation and launching of tsunamis and likely controls the width,
magnitude, and segmentation of megathrust ruptures. The southern
Alaska-eastern Aleutian subduction zone involves subduction of oceanic crust beneath thick continental and island-arc crust, similar to the Cascadia
subduction zone. However, it has along-strike variations in subduction
obliquity and sediment thickness that make it well suited to understanding
subduction processes. A reevaluation of existing marine geophysical
data sets, combined with historical seismicity and ongoing paleoseismic
studies, is needed to compare the southern Alaska-eastern Aleutians
subduction zone with other subduction zones to fully understand both near-
and far-field hazards. We seek a postdoctoral fellow to pursue fundamental
and applied research into subduction zone structure, processes, and tsunami
generation, with a focus on the southern Alaska-eastern Aleutian subduction
zone. The study may focus on any research relevant to better defining
potential hazards of subduction-zone systems.

Opportunity 20: Joint US-Japan Program to Develop CoulombExpress: A
Near-Realtime Online Earthquake Forecasting Tool for Emergency Responders and Scientists

The spatial distribution of Coulomb stress is generally found to be
correlated with the distribution of aftershocks and with the triggering of
subsequent main shocks. The static Coulomb stress can be rapidly and
reliably calculated, and, if it is produced automatically and made publicly
available, it can serve to identify sites or faults with an increased
seismic risk following main shocks. Under this Research Opportunity, the
Mendenhall Fellow would help to develop a robust automatic system to
calculate Coulomb stress changes using real-time and near real-time seismic
catalog information, such as magnitude, location, depth, and the two nodal
planes. The simplest module would use earthquake location, depth, and
magnitude only, the information most rapidly available. For cases in which
focal mechanism information is available, we propose to calculate the
Coulomb stress change on both nodal planes, making the assumption that the receiver (or surrounding) faults have the same strike, rake, and dip as the
source faults.

Opportunity 21: Research for Building New Holistic Earthquake Monitoring

We seek a postdoctoral fellow to engage in studies that will develop
insights and strategies for the next generation of earthquake monitoring.
The research conducted in this project would test the hypothesis that
geodetic and seismic data are complementary and can be used simultaneously for more robust monitoring than traditional seismically-based monitoring, not only of earthquakes but also for other deformation transients that provide clues about the accumulation and release of tectonic stresses.
Research will focus on the Cascadia subduction zone in the Pacific
Northwest, where both state-of-the-art seismic and geodetic networks
operate, the discovery of episodic tremor and slow slip has led to the
recognition that significant fractions of stored up strain energy are
released aseismically, and the consequences of a major earthquake
necessitates research to improve our understanding of and ability to monitor
and respond to such events. The Fellow will be encouraged to explore analog studies and to demonstrate the transferability of strategies and results
from the Cascadia to other regions and monitoring circumstances.

Opportunity 22: Dynamic Rupture, Ground Motion and High-Speed Fault Strength

The focus of this opportunity is on new research in seismology,
computational geophysics or rock mechanics that considers fault strength,
the resulting particle motions and radiated field resulting from slip at
speeds in the range of millimeters to meters per second. We invite proposals
to determine mechanisms and implications of dynamic weakening at high slip
speed for earthquake source properties and ground motion. The research scope is broad; including, but not limited to, making testable, predictive models of rupture propagation and ground motion, exploring seismological
observations for constraints on dynamic fault strength, making direct
measurements of fault strength at dynamic slip speeds, and developing
constitutive relations of dynamic weakening for use in numerical models.

Opportunity 23: Mapping the San Andreas Fault System in the Third Dimension -- In the Salton Trough, the San Francisco Bay Area, and Central California

Understanding the Earth in the third dimension is particularly important to
earthquake hazards research, given that earthquakes originate in the
subsurface. For example, faults in California are seismogenic in the general
depth range 3 to 15 km, and basins, which enhance shaking, range in depth
from less than 1 km to more than 10 km. A combination of active and passive seismic imaging of the subsurface is critical to understanding many areas of ongoing earthquake hazards research at the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS). Specific projects for postdoctoral proposals under this opportunity include:
(1) acquisition, processing, and interpretation of data from the upcoming
(Feb 2011) Salton Seismic Imaging Survey (SSIP) and seismicity data for
structure, earthquake hazards, and magmatic systems in the Salton Trough;
(2) processing and interpretation of active- and passive-source seismic data
for structure and velocities (a) in the transition region from the southern
Rodgers Creek to the northern Hayward Faults and (b) along the Peninsular
San Andreas Fault; and (3) reprocessing of industry seismic data, modeling
of seismicity data, and evaluation of tectonics of the central California
Coast Ranges and Great Valley.

Opportunity 24. Exploring the Earthquake Cycle in Southern California

The focus of this Opportunity is on research in seismology that will lead to
a deeper understand fault behavior and the nature of the earthquake cycle
through analysis of continuous and triggered waveforms recorded by the
Southern California Seismic Network (SCSN) over the past 3 decades.
Research proposals on non-volcanic tremor are invited to identify regions
where tremor is occurring, to explore how tremor responds to tidal loading
and distant earthquakes, to develop methods for detecting and quantifying
tremor in near-real-time, and to develop models and theories of the
underlying physical processes that generate tremor. Research proposals on
earthquakes are invited to study the long-term evolution of seismicity along
specific fault structures using waveform-based methods to better quantify
the seismic behavior of faults, to provide evidence for or against repeating
earthquakes on southern California faults, and to search for temporal
changes in the crust related to earthquake activity. Proposals that explore
the nature and physical processes associated with large earthquake sequences are also welcome. The availability of real-time data on a state-of-the art network provides a laboratory for prospective testing of hypotheses.

Opportunity 25: Developing Earthquake Damage Detection Methods and An Early Warning System for Nation's Infrastructure

We seek a postdoctoral fellow to engage in studies that will develop
insights and strategies for the next generation of structural health
monitoring. The currently available system identification methods that use
data from structural arrays can determine if the structure has been damaged,
but cannot indicate precisely the location of the damage, and are hence
referred to as global. The research conducted in this project will focus on
development of reliable methods and algorithms for structural system
identification, local early warning and damage detection. Another facet of
the research opportunity will be implementation of these methods into the
USGS/NSMP integrated structural health monitoring system to assess the
effect of shaking in the structure during an earthquake.

Dear Higher Education Professional,
I wanted to make you and your students aware of a wonderful student research opportunity this coming summer. NASA is sponsoring the 2011 Student Airborne Research Program after the success of SARP in 2009 and 2010. The National Suborbital Education and Research Center at the University of North Dakota organizes the program for NASA. The program gives a total research experience to the students starting with lectures from university research faculty and NASA staff on all aspects of airborne research, hands on experience with airborne instrumentation, flight experience on a research data flight, sample and data analysis, and preparation and presentation of their research results. The 6 week program will be run from two locations in California, the University of California at Irvine campus and the NASA Dryden Aircraft Operations Facility in Palmdale, CA. The 2010 program included 29 students from 24 universities from all areas of the country. Three outstanding student presentations were selected for presentation at the NASA booth at the 2010 American Geophysical Union's Fall Meeting in San Francisco, CA this December.
I am attaching the SARP 2011 flier which can also be accessed at http://www.nserc.und.edu/learning/SARP2011.html along with the application materials.
