EarthScope-type Canadian Cordillera Seismic Array and GPS Network

Sunday December 11, 2016, 8am – 1pm, Grand Hyatt Union Square 36th Floor

Conveners:
     Rick Aster (Colorado State)
     Roy Hyndman (Pacific Geoscience Centre)
     Pascal Audet (University of Ottawa)
     Katherine Boggs (Mount Royal University)
     Julie Elliott (Purdue)
     Michael Schmidt
     Derek Schutt (Colorado State)

Dear Colleagues,

As you begin to make plans for AGU, we encourage you to consider attending our GeoPRISMS mini-workshop on an “EarthScope-type Canadian Cordillera Seismic Land and GPS Network,” from 8am-1pm on Sunday. This is a rapidly evolving topic, and we wish to discuss a new initiative called the CCArray, which would be a land/sea instrument deployment that bridges the GeoPRISMS focus areas in the Gulf of Alaska and Cascadia and links to the Earthscope Transportable Array and Amphibious Array instruments in the Yukon and Lower 48 States.

Our workshop will discuss science targets, potential funding sources, and present the results of several workshops and whitepapers. We will include short keynote talks and encourage vigorous community discussion.

Best regards,

Rick Aster (Colorado State), Roy Hyndman (Pacific Geoscience Centre), Pascal Audet (University of Ottawa), Katherine Boggs (Mount Royal University), Julie Elliott (Purdue), Michael Schmidt, Derek Schutt (Colorado State)

Volcanoes in Extensional and Compressional Settings

Sunday December 11, 2016, 1:30pm – 5pm, Grand Hyatt Union Square 36th Floor

Conveners:
     Cindy Ebinger (Rochester)
     Christelle Wauthier (PSU)
     Cliff Thurber (Wisconsin)
     Maya Tolstoy (LDEO)
     Einat Lev (LDEO)
     James Muirhead (Syracuse)
     Josef Dufek (Georgia Tech)

Understanding the interaction between magmatism/volcanism and tectonics at plate boundaries calls for communication and collaboration between many disciplines, including geochemistry, geodesy, seismology, geodynamics, and volcanology, and between groups that traditionally focus on different plate boundaries. The GeoPRISMS mini-workshop “Volcanoes in Extensional and Compressional Settings,” to be held in conjunction with AGU the Fall Meeting, aims to foster new connections and collaborations through a focus on break-out discussions of recent findings, open questions, and potential for comparative studies of volcanism at different tectonic settings.
