MCS RCN’s Megathrust Modeling Workshop
The application to participate in the MCS RCN’s Megathrust Modeling Workshop will close on Friday, August 16. We encourage you to apply here: https://forms.gle/TL8AkvUw9SdQhen59.
The Megathrust Modeling Workshop will focus on assessing the critical aspects of faulting, earthquake sequences and aseismic slip, and megathrust rupture dynamics that should be included in the future Modeling Collaboratory for Subduction Zone Science (MCS).
Our three main sessions will focus on:
- Modeling earthquake sequences and aseismic slip
- Modeling dynamic ruptures and tsunamis
- Geodynamic and surface processes
Confirmed speakers include: Alice Gabriel, Shuoshuo Han, Shuo Ma, Tatsuhiko Saito, Ylona van Dinther, Camilla Cattania, Victor Cruz-Atienza, Jessica Hawthorne, John Platt, Jean-Arthur Olive, Judith Hubbard, Noah Finnegan, and Kelin Wang.
The main workshop will be held at the University of Oregon in Eugene, October 7-9, 2019, ending with a half-day session on the final morning. There will be a special session focused toward early career scientists (ECS) on October 6, with presentations by Roland Burgmann, Eric Dunham, and Thorsten Becker. There will be an opportunity to present posters on the evening of October 7.
Some funding will be available for travel support. More information, including a tentative schedule of events, is available at our website: https://www.sz4dmcs.org/megathrust-workshop. Remote participation will be available for those who cannot attend in person.
