Estimates of aseismic slip associated with small earthquakes near San Juan Bautista, CA

Estimates of aseismic slip associated with small earthquakes near San Juan Bautista, CA

However, it has been suggested that the self-similar scaling breaks for very small earthquakes. Investigations of small repeating earthquakes reveal recurrence intervals that are surprisingly long given the estimated seis- mic slip [Nadeau and Johnson, 1998; Chen et al., 2007]. Chen and Lapusta [2009] proposed that these long recurrence intervals result in part from large postseismic slip. Their model predicts that small (M < 3) repeating earthquakes should have postseismic moments that are 10 to 100 times larger than their seismic moments. In this study, we estimate coseismic and postseismic moments for M 1.9–5 earthquakes near San Juan Bautista, CA. We use data from U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) borehole strainmeter SJT, which has recorded more than 1000 M ≥ 1 . 9 earthquakes since 1983. We introduce the data in section 3. In section 4, we con- sider the individual records of several M 3–5 earthquakes. The records of most smaller earthquakes have low signal-to-noise ratios, so in section 5 we develop a method to stack the strain from about 1000 events. We present the stacked strain signals in section 6, and in section 7 we discuss their implications for repeating and nonrepeating earthquakes.

A Method for Calibration of the Local Magnitude Scale Based on Relative Spectral Amplitudes, and Application to the San Juan Bautista, California, Area

A Method for Calibration of the Local Magnitude Scale Based on Relative Spectral Amplitudes, and Application to the San Juan Bautista, California, Area

Earthquake moments are required for a variety of inves- tigations. They are used when examining earthquake statis- tics, as in b-value studies (e.g., Wiemer et al., 2002; Wyss et al., 2004; Ghosh et al., 2008), when interpreting earth- quake rates, as in studies of repeating earthquakes (e.g., Na- deau and Johnson, 1998; Templeton et al., 2008; Werner and Sornette, 2008; Taira et al., 2014), and when comparing geo- detic and seismic observations, as in studies of postseismic slip (e.g., Bell et al., 2012; Fattahi et al., 2015; Hawthorne et al., 2016). Here, we use an empirical Green ’ s function ap- proach to estimate the relative moments of about 1600 earth- quakes near San Juan Bautista, California. Located at the northern end of the creeping section of the San Andreas fault (see Fig. 1), the San Juan Bautista area is of particular interest because many of the earthquakes are observed with nearby borehole strainmeters. The strain data present an opportunity to compare the seismic moments with postseismic moments estimated from geodesy (Hawthorne et al., 2016).

Using a coupled agent based modeling approach to analyze the role of risk perception in water management decisions

Using a coupled agent based modeling approach to analyze the role of risk perception in water management decisions

Combining BI mapping and CL modeling allows us to (1) explicitly describe human decision-making processes, (2) quantify the associated decision uncertainty caused by in- complete/ambiguous information, and (3) examine the adap- tive water management in response to a changing natural environment as well as socioeconomic conditions. Calibra- tion results for this coupled BC-ABM–RiverWare model, as demonstrated in the San Juan River basin, show that this methodology can capture the historical pattern of both hu- man activities (irrigated area changes) and natural dynamics (streamflow changes) while quantifying the risk perception of each agent via risk perception parameters (λ). The sce- nario results also show that the majority of agents in the basin are risk-averse, which confirms the conclusion of Tena and Gómez (2008). The improved representation of the proposed BC-ABM is evidenced by the closer agreement of BC-ABM simulations against observations, compared to those from an ABM without using BI mapping and CL ratio. Chang- ing economic conditions also yield intuitive agent behavior; that is, when crop area expansion is more expensive/cheaper, fewer/more agents will do it.

HIV screening among newly diagnosed TB patients: a cross sectional study in Lima, Peru

HIV screening among newly diagnosed TB patients: a cross sectional study in Lima, Peru

TB patients. A sample size of 1130 was calculated for those objectives. Adults with a smear-positive pulmonary TB episode diagnosed between March 2010 and Decem- ber 2011 with no history of previous TB treatment were enrolled. Patients initiated anti-TB treatment at the TB clinic and were followed at the health facility until the end of their treatment regimen. Treatment outcomes were prospectively obtained from the NTP registers. TB registers were monitored monthly up to two years after the end of treatment of the last enrolled case for TB re- currence. If a recurrent episode was found among an en- rolled and cured TB patient, a sputum sample was collected [15, 16]. San Juan de Lurigancho is a periurban district in the north east of Lima and lies on the side of a hill. It is the most populous district in Peru, with over one million inhabitants. In 2015, TB incidence in Lima was 164.9 per 100,000 inhabitants [17].

Understanding and Forecasting Zonda Wind (Andean Foehn) in Argentina: A Review

Understanding and Forecasting Zonda Wind (Andean Foehn) in Argentina: A Review

Otero & Norte [9] intended to evaluate possible methods of objective classification of zonda wind events and update the statistics of this phenomenon in the city of San Juan. All methods were able to identify many of the zonda wind events in San Juan. Next, these methods were compared with subjective classification methods. The diurnal and monthly cycle, onset, offset and average duration were compared. After comparing the methods, those events subjectively classified were taken, and a new classification was made according to the maximum wind speed. A weather description was made, and the differences were discussed with respect to the new classi- fication, the daily and annual cycle, duration and onset. Then, the percentage frequency of wind directions for different zonda wind intensities was described. Finally, the percentage distribution of the gusts and wind speed for the entire zonda wind data was analyzed.

Finding Common Ground: Defining Agricultural Viability and Streamlining Multi-organization Data Collection

Finding Common Ground: Defining Agricultural Viability and Streamlining Multi-organization Data Collection

The work group was charged with developing a ten-year work plan specifying the purpose, goals, and measurable objectives for enhancing agricul- tural viability while protecting critical areas in SJC. Between January 2016 and October 2017, the group met 12 times as a whole. In addition, two subcommittees were established to discuss and work out the details of the critical areas and agri- cultural viability components of the plan. The work plan focused on establishing a baseline and moni- toring approach to conserve critical landscapes and to maintain and improve the long-term viability of agriculture. Under the VSP, agricultural producers can voluntarily develop an individual stewardship plan. There is no penalty for producers who choose not to participate. The VSP is incentive- based and does not restrict new or existing agricul- tural activities. The San Juan Islands Conservation District (SJICD) was designated as the technical assistance provider to the VSP and is responsible for the VSP monitoring and reporting at the watershed scale.

The ambivalent relation between state and illegal actors: piracy retail in Mexico

The ambivalent relation between state and illegal actors: piracy retail in Mexico

Corruption practices are widely accepted in the San Juan de Dios mar- ket. Since popular markets and street vending are a socioeconomic space that has been historically framed in the realm of informality, mordidas are the very resource used by vendors to win some power and avoid municipal regulations. Bribing authorities has made possible the rise of commercial activities in places or zones in the cities where vending is not allowed (i. e. downtown pedestrian streets), or to tolerate the retail of merchandise that is not legal (Cross 1998; De la Peña 2000). Piracy retail in the San Juan de Dios market occurs within this framework: norms and regulations are neutralised by bribery.

The effect of a special featured text on students' consciousness of the consequences of plastic garbage in a developing country : a field study in San Juan del Sur, Nicaragua

The effect of a special featured text on students' consciousness of the consequences of plastic garbage in a developing country : a field study in San Juan del Sur, Nicaragua

Based on these findings a field study in San Juan del Sur is conducted. A suitable teaching strategy is important to raise people’s consciousness of the risks of plastic garbage. Due to lack of technical resources in San Juan del Sur, a text printed on a paper is chosen. Nevertheless, a paper-based text can have major advantages in comparison to other media. In order to reach the reader’s understanding of the influe nce of his or her own behavior and peoples’ and animals’ health, the comprehension of the given information has to be insured. A paper- based text affords people to read passages again that they didn’t understand and to go back to prior passages in the text, which can help them to compare and summarize information in order to understand the whole message of the text. Mangen, Walgermo and Brønnick (2013) did research on effects on reading comprehension of linear text on paper and on computer screens. Thereby they found that reading texts on paper leads to better reading comprehension than reading the same text on a computer screen. Furthermore reading on a computer screen can cause visual fatigue due to their emitting light and can lead to additional cognitive costs. In contrast, a paper does not include these impairments (Mangen, Walgermo, & Brønndick, 2013). In addition, t he text should include special features, which help to grab peoples’ attention, increase comprehension of the text and finally raise people s’ awareness. For example, in order to grab people ’ s attention the text should have some special features in form and content, e.g. pictures and numbers and facts about plastic garbage.

Chapter F of the International Code of Nomenclature for algae, fungi, and plants as approved by the 11th International Mycological Congress, San Juan, Puerto Rico, July 2018

Chapter F of the International Code of Nomenclature for algae, fungi, and plants as approved by the 11th International Mycological Congress, San Juan, Puerto Rico, July 2018

At the San Juan FNS, seven of the proposals from the floor related to governance, as covered in Division III. It was realized that these proposals were likely to be outside of the current mandate extended to the IMC, which is lim- ited to “proposals relating to the content of Chapter F” (Div. III Prov. 8.1). Consequently, four of the seven pro- posals were withdrawn by their proposers and three were rejected. One such proposal concerned establishment of an “Editorial Committee for Fungi” (see above), the others re- lated to the guiding vote. As discussed in the report on Congress actions (May et al. 2018) an opinion will be sought from the General Committee as to whether or not proposals to modify Division III (in relation to procedures restricted to mycological matters) can be dealt with at an IMC, or must be considered at an IBC.

La Lluera I Cave (San Juan De Priorio, Oviedo, Asturias, Spain): Art and GIS of the More Figurative Areas or “Niche Areas” of a Sanctuary

When reviewing, albeit briefly, the historiography of the Paleolithic cave art we realize the different and varied theories that are have been developed to attempt to give answer to the big question of motivation which pushed to its realization, but, also, have been numerous and sometimes sophisticated, the tools that have been developed for their study, more and more complex and detailed. First Prehistorians were or collaborated with great artists: Paul Ratier, french painter, is the pioneer [14]; H. Breuil, in the beginning of the 20th century in their research on the prehistoric art of the Cantabrian Region [1-2]; Juan Cabré and Benitez Mellado, also in the beginning of the 20th century, helping with his drawings to Hernández Pacheco studies about the Candamo cave [4]; etc. It is also, when start to publish the first photographs of rock art [1]. Not only that, but in certain publications made copies on vellum superimposed photographs, looking for simulating the game overlays and show the three-dimensionality of prehistoric art [1].
