Northern California Research to Enable an Earthquake Early Warning Prototype for the Western United States

The University of California, Berkeley, in collaboration with the California Institute of Technology and the University of Washington, will analyze the concurrent seismic and GPS signals of recent large (M<7) earthquakes, develop finite-fault algorithms for rupture dynamics, and create the first system to produce real-time GPS displacement measurements at northern California monitoring sites. The resulting knowledge gained will contribute to the development of a west coast prototype earthquake early warning system capable of providing robust advance warning-ranging from tens of seconds to minutes-of the size, extent and timing of imminent earthquakes.
