On the Cover…
GPS networks and data-mining are providing new ways to detect and track slowslip earthquakes, which have important implications for operational earthquake forecasting. This emerging field is examined here in an SRL focus section, “The SCEC Geodetic Transient Detection Validation Exercise.” The graphic shows results of one data product provided by an automated geodetic detection algorithm. It depicts the anomalous displacements and shear strain magnitudes that occurred in southern California during the two years spanning 27 August 2010 to 27 August 2012, a period dominated by the post-seismic effects of the El Mayor-Cucapah earthquake.

May 3 – Volume 84, Number 3, the May/June issue of Seismological Research Letters (SRL), is now available online. This issue includes a special focus section, “The SCEC Geodetic Transient Detection Validation Exercise,” which shows how GPS networks and data-mining are providing new ways to detect and track slow-slip earthquakes, with important implications for operational earthquake forecasting (a press release on the focus section is available). Also featured are an Opinion, “A Dispassionate View of Seismic-Hazard Assessment” by Polat Gülkan, an Electronic Seismologist about a Python tool for automated retrieval of seismological waveform data, an EduQuakes column about using music to teach seismology and six electronic supplements.
