Cascadia Initiative mini-workshop
On the Sunday afternoon and evening prior the OBS workshop (October 20) there was a half-day mini-workshop on the ocean bottom seismometer portion of the Cascadia Initiative (http://cascadia.uoregon.edu/CIET/). The objectives of this meeting were to (1) update the community on the status of the deployments, (2) discuss the data quality, (3) provide a forum for short presentations on the initial results and plans for data analysis, and (4) discuss the motivation and priorities for the fourth year of the deployments.
