Who are our primary stakeholders for the project? (External to USGS)

Dependencies: We are working with the Northern California Earthquake Hazards project to cooperatively investigate Mojave neotectonics, because the result affects seismology models for San Andreas fault hazard. That project will bring paleoseismology expertise, which will be essential for establishing fault slip histories across the northern Mojave Desert. Collaborators include:

Arizona/University of Arizona (POC: Rick Bennett)
Private Industry/LSA Associates (POC: Robert Reynolds)
Southern California Earthquake Center (POC: Ken Hudnut)
University of Nevada, Las Vegas (POC: Michael Wells)
Utah State University (POC: Susanne Janecke)
California Division of Mines and Geology/California Geological Survey (POC: Jerry Treiman)
California Division of Mines and Geology/California Geological Survey (POC: George Saucedo)
California State University, San Bernardino (POC: Sally McGill)
University of California, Davis/University of North Carolina (POC: Mike Oskin)
