For the seventh time since 1964, a seminar on earthquake prediction has been convened under the U.S.-Japan Cooperation in Science Program. The purpose of the seminar was to provide an opportunity for researchers from the two countries to share recent progress and future plans in the continuing effort to develop the scientific basis for predicting earthquakes and practical means for implementing prediction technology as it emerges. Thirty-six contributors, 15 from Japan and 21 from the U.S., met in Morro Bay, California, September 12-14. The following day they traveled to nearby sections of the San Andreas fault, including the site of the Parkfield prediction experiment. The conveners of the seminar were Hiroo Kanamori, Seismological Laboratory, Caltech, for the U.S., and Takeshi Mikumo, Disaster Prevention Research Institute, Kyoto University, for Japan. Funding for the participants came from the U.S. National Science Foundation and the Japan Society for the Promotion of Science, supplemented by other agencies in both countries.
