On 1 - 3 December 1977, a Conference on "Fault Mechanics and
Its Relation to Earthquake Prediction" was held at Stanford
University, Stanford, California. This Conference was the third
in a continuing series of Conferences to be held under the auspices
of the Earthquake Hazards Reduction Program.
These Conferences and publication of their proceedings are a
vital part of the EHRP, as they are intended to be state-of-knowledge
Conferences and documents. They are intended to provide intellectual
stimulus both to participants and to recipients of the proceedings.
Participants in the EHRP are encouraged to suggest topics for
future Conferences. The subject should be of comparatively narrow
focus, should be based on active participation of all attendees,
all of whom must be conducting research appropriate to the Conference
theme. Total attendance is restricted to 25 or 30.
