The WGCEP is responsible for developing Uniform California Earthquake Forecasts (UCERFs) using the best available science. The working group convenes periodically to build statewide, time-dependent earthquake rupture forecasts (ERFs) that are endorsed by the United States Geological Survey (USGS), the Southern California Earthquake Center (SCEC), and the California Geological Survey (CGS).

The full UCERF3 model and reports are now available.
