Seismic Waves: Network Hitting Its Stride, Linking More Than Laboratories   [open pdf - 519KB]

Seismic Waves is a newsletter published by the National Earthquake Hazards Reduction Program [NEHRP]. "Now entering its eighth year in operation, the George E. Brown, Jr. Network for Earthquake Engineering Simulation (NEES) is accelerating advances in earthquake safety in unprecedented ways. Known for the cutting-edge research enabled by its state-of- the-art network of laboratories, NEES is also helping the earthquake engineering community become more interconnected and collaborative, in the United States and internationally. As part of its contribution to the National Earthquake Hazards Reduction Program, the National Science Foundation (NSF) funds NEES operations (Award # CMMI- 0927178) as well as many of the research projects that are conducted in NEES facilities. NEES operations are managed by the NEES Community and Communications Team (NEEScomm), which is headquartered at Purdue University in West Lafayette, IN, and includes key administrative partners at the University of Texas at Austin, San Jose State University, the University of Washington at Seattle, the University of Kansas at Lawrence, and Fermi National Accelerator Laboratory."
