ENAM Mini-Workshop at AGU: Message from the conveners

Dear students/post-docs (faculty, please forward this message to your early-career folks!),

We wanted to make sure you were aware of this year’s pre-AGU GeoPRISMS mini-workshops, the first of which will focus on studies of the Eastern North American Margin (ENAM). The short workshop, on the Sunday morning (December 10th) preceding the main AGU conference, will highlight cutting-edge research products related to the ENAM and include community discussion of outstanding questions, particularly those demanding integration of multidisciplinary approaches.

Significant time is set aside in the workshop to showcase the research products of graduate students and post-doctoral scientists. We are soliciting 5-minute “pop-up” research highlights, of 1-2(max!) slides. This is a fantastic opportunity to have your most exciting research noticed by the wider community, and will provide a stepping stone for YOU to enter the discussion and shape our evolving understanding of this important research site.

We plan to organise contributions into the following broad pseudo-geographic groupings:
  • Appalachian Mountains
  • Coastal Plain
  • Offshore Margin
  • Margin-wide processes

However, these categories will be interpreted quite loosely, so if you have exciting results that don’t easily fit into this schema, don’t be put off.

If you would like to give a pop up, please apply here with a title and a brief abstract or summary of what you want to present. Please also register for the mini-workshop here.

We look forward to seeing you at the mini-workshop and at the AGU conference,

The organisers (Colton Lynner & Zach Eilon)
