The purpose of this workshop is to provide a forum for dialogue between scientists and researchers working on the science relevant to understanding the lithospheric state of stress in Earth. Participants will come primarily from the US and Europe and span a wide spectrum of specialties including various subdomains of the geosciences (seismology, solid earth geophysics, tectonophysics, geodesy, etc.), physics, and machine learning. The workshop is intended to motivate discussion and collaboration across disciplines in order to make advances in determining the state of stress from the regional down to the reservoir scale. A primary goal of the workshop is to examine the evolution of the state of stress associated with evolving stress on faults in tectonic and anthropogenic environments. We will discussion the identification and characterization of faults that are critically stressed and approaching failure. Discussion of the potential role of machine learning for application to these topics is encouraged. With this diverse group of attendees we hope to develop new or hybrid approaches for determining the state of stress and addressing critical stress behavior.
The three-day workshop will consists of contributed talks and posters, with plenary presentations scheduled by William Ellsworth (USGS), Mark and Mary Lou Zoback (Stanford), Randy Richardson (University of Arizona)
