The Earth Scientist, Volume XXVII, Issue 1, Spring 2011
sponsored by IRIS Consortium. The Incorporated Research Institutions for Seismology (IRIS) Consortium has partnered with NESTA to produce this special, seismology focused issue of The Earth Scientist. The theme for this issue is Modernizing Your Seismology Education. In this issue, you will find a collection of five invited articles that showcase the complexity and wealth of new teaching opportunities that exist within seismology education. The first article informs us of a newly discovered mode of fault behavior called Episodic Tremor and Slip. This is a must read for all of us. The next article tells how you can successfully teach the concept of Episodic Tremor and Slip in the Middle School Classroom yielding new understandings of subduction zones. The third article shares information regarding the USArray, a collection of high-precision seismometers which is providing visualizations of seismic waves, thus providing rich visual reinforcement of what is known about seismic wave properties. This is followed by an article which deals with the wide array of student held “alternative” conceptions about geophysics and how some of their ideas persist, despite instruction. The final article shows how, in the classroom, you can examine and model the causes of intraplate earthquakes, such as those along the New Madrid Seismic Zone, in the central USA. These well researched, well written articles are presented in the hope that they will help to modernize your seismology education by providing either substantial background information or allowing for immediate application in your classroom.

Rising Above the Gathering Storm, Revisited: Rapidly Approaching Category 5
Authors: By Members of the 2005 "Rising Above the Gathering Storm" Committee; Prepared for the Presidents of the National Academy of Sciences, National Academy of Engineering, and Institute of Medicine

In the face of so many daunting near-term challenges, U.S. government and industry are letting the crucial strategic issues of U.S. competitiveness slip below the surface. Five years ago, the National Academies prepared Rising Above the Gathering Storm, a book that cautioned: "Without a renewed effort to bolster the foundations of our competitiveness, we can expect to lose our privileged position." Since that time we find ourselves in a country where much has changed--and a great deal has not changed.
