Reaction to 2011 Tohoku Eqk
For California, focus has been on the largemagnitude of the Tohoku Eqk
 – 
Are the California nuclear plants designed for M9earthquake
 – 
If the Japanese can be surprised by a largemagnitude earthquake, why do we think we won’tbe surprised too?
 
Data for Source Characterization
Instrumental Earthquakes
 – 
Very short observation periods (30-100 years)
Historical Earthquakes
 – 
Short observation periods (100-1000 years)
Geologic Data
 – 
Longer time periods
Slip-rates & Paleoseismicdata (1,000-10,000 years)
 – 
Does not capture temporal variations
Geodetic Data
 – 
Current deformation rates
 – 
Short observation period generally not robust other thanfor major faults
