Report of the IASPEI Audity Committee for the period 2003-2007 We have examined the accounts presented by the treasurer for the period 2003 to 2006. We have established that the accounts represent fairly the transactions of IASPEI and its financial status. We have interviewed the treasurer about the oscillations in expenses following the 2-year cycle of IASPEI meetings, about the IDEA-Seismoarchives funds, and about the Doornbos Fund. And we have found all the explanations fully satisfactory. We note that the operation of IASPEI is managed with a small percentage of the available funds, and that the dominating expenses are for assemblies and other scientific meetings with a large emphasis on travel grants. We consider the finances of IASPEI to be in a healthy state with a level of reserves of the order of one- year expenses being satisfactory. We give the treasurer discharge for the accounts for the period 2003-2006. David D. Jackson Kiyoshi Suyehiro Perugia, July 12, 2007

IASPEI Closing Plenary Friday 13 July Perugia, Italy Resolution 1: Use of model ak135 for earthquake location RECOGNIZING that the workshops on ‘Modernizing ISC location procedures’ have demonstrated that the ak135 traveltime tables provide a better fit than the Jeffreys- Bullen (JB) tables to observed seismic phases, IASPEI RECOMMENDS that the International Seismological Centre replace the JB model by ak135 for the routine location of seismic events.
IASPEI Closing Plenary Friday 13 July 2007, Perugia, Italy Resolution 2: Consistent determination & reporting of earthquake source parameters RECOGNISING the long-term need for a broader set of standardized seismological phase and parameter data in seismological research and practice, especially amplitude, period, magnitude, moment and energy, IASPEI RECOMMENDS that steps be taken to develop common standards for the reporting of earthquake source parameters for use by national, regional and global data centers.
IASPEI Closing Plenary Friday 13 July 2007, Perugia, Italy Resolution 3: Timely reporting to ISC RECOGNIZING that the ISC provides an on-line compilation of parametric data contributed by observatories and data centres, available to all soon after they are contributed, IASPEI URGES all ISC contributors to report epicentres, magnitudes, phases and focal mechanisms to the ISC as quickly as possible.
IASPEI Closing Plenary Friday 13 July Perugia, Italy Resolution 4: Naming the unit of Seismic Moment after Prof. Kei-iti Aki RECOGNISING that seismic moment is widely used as a fundamental measure of the size of an earthquake, and RECOGNISING that Prof. Kei-iti Aki was a pioneer in defining seismic moment and describing practical ways to measure it, IASPEI RECOMMENDS that 1 Aki (Ak) be defined as 10 18 Nm, and further RECOMMENDS that the Aki be recognized as a standard unit of earthquake size.
IASPEI Closing Plenary Friday 13 July 2007, Perugia, Italy Resolution 5: Appreciation RECOGNISING the enormous effort required to organise the General Assembly, IASPEI THANKS the IUGG Local Organizing Committee and its Chair Professor Lucio UBERTINI for a memorable meeting in Perugia.
Thanks to all for participating in this IUGG/IASPEI General Assembly! We hope to see you again at the IASPEI2009 General Assembly in CAPETOWN, South Africa CLOSE OF PLENARY
