A workshop focused on Coupling of Tectonic and Surface Processes (CTSP) will be held from April 25-27, 2018 and is intended to survey both questions and state of the art numerical techniques that simulate surface processes and long term tectonic (LTT) processes in an attempt to define a framework for the development of efficient numerical algorithms that couple across multiple length and time scales. This workshop will provide a unique opportunity for researchers to develop collaborations and proposal ideas and by doing so enhance and increase the impact of both the LTT and CSDMS communities. We expect a broad and diverse audience drawn from domestic and international research communities, including graduate students, post-docs, and early career scientists, who are interested in coupling landscape evolution to tectonic processes.
Organizing committee: Mark Behn (WHOI), Luc Lavier (UT DGS/IG), Thorsten Becker (UT DGS/IG), Phaedra Upton (GNS New Zealand), Eric Mittelstaedt (U. Idaho), Catherine Cooper (Wash. State Univ.), Greg Tucker (U. Colorado, Boulder), Louise Kellogg (UC Davis), Nicole Gasparini (Tulane Univ.), Boris Kaus (U. Mainz).
Funding: The CSTP is funded by the National foundation through the Earth Sciences division. There is no registration fee. We will be able to cover most on-site expenses (venue costs, hotel expenses based on double occupancy, and breakfast & lunch) for approximately 70 participants. Most participants will have their travel to and from the meeting covered. We will not be able to provide dinners on-site, but there are several restaurants nearby. Confirmed participants whose on-site expenses are covered are expected to arrive on Tuesday evening and leave on Friday morning.
