We conducted a planning meeting on 5/9/14 in order to prepare for this exercise. More background material is on the website for that meeting.
Here we post only material used by our regional “subject matter expert” field team will use for the exercise.
- Exercise Timeline: Wednesday 5/14/14 from 10 AM – 1 PM
The exercise begins on the third day following an earthquake and tsunami caused by rupture along the Cascadia subduction zone earthquake fault. The Earthquake Clearinghouse will be located on the College of the Redwoods Campus (see map below).
Relevant Material for this exercise:
- The Goals for our Tsunami Science Team during this exercise
- Humboldt Norcal Tsunami Science Field Guide
Here are our Regional Tsunami Science “subject matter expert” field team summary and update reports for the two days prior to the day our exercise represents (the 3rd day following the earthquake).

- Access: The California Earthquake Clearinghouse has arranged for all Clearinghouse Members to have access to the SpotOnResponse software. Obtain credentials from firstname.lastname@example.org – note: try your username/password from prior exercises
- How to Engage: Use SpotOnResponse to view all incidents, field observations, and many GIS data sources (available in KML format). Create incidents, associate field observations with incidents (including notes, photos, videos, documents and links to additional resources). Add GIS data (KML format) as data associated with an incident for display on SpotOnResponse as well as for sharing to other KML-enabled applications, including Google Earth.
