Description: Notice of Intent to award a cooperative agreement to the San Francisco State University (SFSU) pursuant to the Advanced National Seismic System (ANSS) in support of the project entitled "Theodolite survey monitoring of fault creep on San Francisco Bay region faults". The main objective of the project is long-term monitoring of interseismic deformation for dynamic seismic hazard assessment and investigation of fault creep and transient phenomena, and use of real-time and near real-time data for earthquake likelihood forecasting, earthquake early warning, rapid response, and assessment of immediate postseismic motion in the San Francisco Bay region. SFSU is uniquely qualified to carry out the work described in their proposal because they currently monitor geodetic stations and analyze data for the heavily populated and seismically active San Francisco Bay region of northern California. SFSU’s well-developed network staff is also of great benefit to this proposed study. The PI has been extensively involved with this effort as a geodetic network operator, and is the logical person to oversee the deferred maintenance work on the network. In addition, specialized equipment is needed for monitoring and has been deployed by SFSU in the regions of monitoring. Some of the field sensors and central recording and computing equipment is university-owned and would not be available to another source. Furthermore, data from the instruments is transmitted to the universities’ facilities and relocation of the data receiving point and telemetry equipment would be costly and time-consuming.
