To further extend the scope of the Science Application for Risk Reduction (SAFRR) project, detailed hydrodynamic simulations were run at three harbor locations in California. For the locations of 1) Oakland/Alameda, 2) Half Moon Bay, and 3) Santa Cruz, simulations at approximately 5-m resolution were performed using the high-order Boussinesq-type model COULWAVE. The Oakland/Richmond simulation area focuses on the major port facilities in the area and the Half Moon Bay and Santa Cruz simulations focus on Pillar Point Harbor and Santa Cruz Harbor, respectively.

High-resolution single-channel Chirp and minisparker seismic-reflection data were collected by the U.S. Geological Survey in March and April 2007, offshore San Mateo County, California. Data were collected aboard the R/V Fulmar during field activity F-02-07-NC. Chirp data were collected using an EdgeTech 512 chirp subbottom system and were recorded with a Triton SB-Logger. Minisparker data were collected using a SIG 2-mille minisparker sound source combined with a single-channel streamer, and both were recorded with a Triton SB-Logger.

The goal of this Powell Center Working Group is to produce a collection of vetted and standardized earthquake and landslide tsunami sources that can be used to produce the meaningful hazard assessment products required for effective tsunami hazard mitigation and risk reduction. The need for a set of realistic and consistent tsunami sources was identified as a high priority at a 2016 workshop between USGS scientists and the National Tsunami Hazards Mitigation Program (NTHMP). The Powell Center Working Group will include scientists from the USGS, NOAA, the NTHMP, academia, and consulting companies. Tsunamis are extreme events that have caused devastation worldwide over the past several decades. The tsunami...

High-resolution single-channel minisparker seismic-reflection data were collected by the U.S. Geological Survey in March and April 2007 from San Francisco to San Gregorio, offshore San Mateo County, California. Data were collected aboard the R/V Fulmar, during field activity F-02-07-NC. Minisparker data were collected using a SIG 2-mille minisparker sound source combined with a single-channel streamer, and recorded with a Triton SB-Logger.
ScienceBase brings together the best information it can find about USGS researchers and offices to show connections to publications, projects, and data. We are still working to improve this process and information is by no means complete. If you don't see everything you know is associated with you, a colleague, or your office, please be patient while we work to connect the dots. Feel free to contact sciencebase@usgs.gov.
