February 08 2007 notes: Let us know about any ongoing collaborations, especially those that were aided by the workshop. I have sent a few emails following the January workshop in Los Angeles on the Southern San Andreas fault. One of the tasks of that workshop was to define a geometry and slip distribution for a M7.8 earthquake on that fault. Research has shown that parts of the San Andreas fault are non-vertical, and so ground motion will eventually be modeled for varying dip along the fault. In my pre-workshop visit to Kandilli Observatory and Marmara Research Center, I was shown seismic reflection images of the North Anatolian fault southeast of Istanbul, where it is non- vertical. So, I am encouraging collaboration in modeling ground motion from the two systems.

Note that when I travelled to Istanbul at the end of May 2006 as a USA citizen that I was able to just pay $20 cash at the Ataturk airport for a Visa: Go to the Visa line before going through Immigration. You may choose to confirm for yourselves that this is still the case.
