AEG Professional Forum on Landslides a success
By all accounts, last week's AEG Professional Forum on Landslides, held at the University of Washington in Seattle, was a great success. Its theme was "Time to Face the Landslide Hazard Dilemma: Bridging Science, Policy, Public Safety and Potential Loss," and it brought together land-use planners, insurance experts, government geologists and consulting engineers from across the country.

Watch for a complete roundup of coverage in a future edition of The AEG Insider. In the meantime, take a look at this The Seattle Times story.

The Open Water Data Initiative
U.S. Geological Survey
Improving access to data and enabling open exchange of water information are vital actions required to identify existing water resources issues and develop sustainable future solutions, particularly in the face of climate change and extraordinary drought. To address this challenge, the Open Water Data Initiative is aimed at integrating fragmented water information that is already being collected by different agencies at several levels of government into a connected, national water data framework.

Hazard lingers after South Napa earthquake
EARTH Magazine
After the Aug. 24, 2014, Napa Valley, California, earthquake, movement continued along the principal fault to the north of the epicenter, according to a report released by the U.S. Geological Survey. Such "afterslip" is known from previous quakes, but this is the first time that strong afterslip has been observed in a populated residential community. While the majority of shaking on the main strand of the West Napa Fault Zone occurred in rural fields, approximately 20 homes were immediately affected. The fault runs under Napa's Browns Valley neighborhood and is expected to slip between 5 and 15 centimeters in the next three years, followed by reduced slip until 2024.
