“Lithospheric Rupture in the Gulf of
California — Salton Trough Region”

Ensenada, Mexico, January 9–13, 2006

Thanks to all of you for attending the MARGINS Workshop on Lithospheric Rupture in the Gulf of California - Salton Trough Region (RCL-Cortez). Rather than rest on our collective laurels, the Convenors and the MARGINS Office would like constructive comments concerning the workshop organization, presentations, and venue in order help improve subsequent MARGINS workshops. Your response will help MARGINS judge how well the workshop fostered its goals  — to encourage scientific and logistical co-ordination, with particular focus on problems that cannot be addressed as efficiently by nations or national institutions acting alone or in limited partnerships.

Thus, when you get a chance, please answer the questions by selecting from the dropdown lists. There are text fields at the end of the questionnaire for comments and thoughts that may not be covered by the questions, or for additional input on your response to any question, if you so desire to expand. Filling out the entire form (without writing additional comments) and submitting it takes less than two minutes, and your input is very important to us! Results of the survey will be posted on the RCL-Cortez summary/reference site.
