Activity Narrative

The Southern California Earthquake Center (SCEC) is a community of over 600 scientists with a basic goal of understanding the physics of the Southern California fault system and predict key aspects of earthquake behavior. Members of NEES@UCSB attended the 2011 annual conference in Palm Springs, submitted abstracts, and presented research at the poster sessions.


​The UCSB Geotechnical Array monitoring program is jointly funded by Pacific Gas & Electric Company and the United States Geological Survey.

This site previously funded 2015 to 2017 by the NRC Contract#NRC-HQ-60-15-C-000, project title "Observations and Analysis of Geotechnical Data". And 2004 to 2014 by the Geoge E. Brown, Jr. Network for Earthquake Engineering Simulation (NEES) Program of the National Earthquake Hazards Reduction Program (NEHRP) of the National Science Foundation (NSF) under Award# CMMI-0927178.
