system. Geophysicists are becoming increasingly aware of the nonstationarity of earthquake occurrence, particularly in light of observations of fault interactions leading to “triggered” or “encouraged” earthquakes. As earth scientists improve their ability to assess time-varying earthquake potential on active faults, SSC will evolve correspondingly. Indeed, “time-variable seismic hazard” is already a topic of special sessions at geophysical society meetings.
