The USGS has just published a new blueprint for advancing science and resilience related to subduction zone hazards, entitled Reducing Risk Where Tectonic Plates Collide – A Plan to Advance Subduction Zone Science. This new Plan describes how the USGS may leverage scientific and technologic developments, address its stakeholder needs, and maximize capabilities through partnerships – with the overall goal of reducing the risks posed by subduction zone events. The Plan is featured on the USGS main webpage, and a quick summary of the Plan is provided in an accompanying Fact Sheet (written for a general audience).
