* ENAM science advances: Progress and outlook

Sunday December 10, 2017 | 8:30am – 1:00pm | Westin Canal Place, Crescent Ballroom – 11th Floor

Conveners: Colton Lynner (University of Arizona) and Zach Eilon (UC Santa Barbara)

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)

* Early-Career Scientists/Faculty: Introduction to GeoPRISMS/MARGINS data resources, mini-lessons, and effective broader impacts

Sunday December 10, 2017 | 1:30pm – 5:30pm | Westin Canal Place, Crescent Ballroom – 11th Floor

Conveners: Juli Morgan (Rice University) and Andrew Goodwillie (LDEO, Columbia University)

Early-career scientists often seek help in generating ideas for successful broader impacts for proposals, in finding reliable sources of material for their class exercises, and in finding effective data tools relevant for their research and teaching. The goal of this mini-workshop is to introduce several popular geoscience data resources and broader impact strategies, and to use the GeoPRISMS-hosted MARGINS mini-lessons as a vehicle to address all three aspects.

Hands-on demonstrations of useful data resources from the IEDA, IRIS and UNAVCO data facilities will be tied to science through examples chosen from the MARGINS mini-lesson collection (http://geoprisms.org/education/mini-lessons/). Ideas for broader impacts will be discussed with an emphasis on compelling ways to broaden one’s reach. Participants will also have time to explore their own questions and ideas for data-rich teaching opportunities, and gain experience with the data tools.

* Amphibious community experiments in Alaska and related opportunities

Sunday December 10, 2017 | 6:00pm – 9:00pm | Westin Canal Place, Crescent Ballroom – 11th Floor

Conveners (in reverse alphabetical order): Lindsay Worthington (University of New Mexico), Spahr Webb (LDEO, Columbia University), Susan Schwartz (UC Santa Cruz), Emily Roland (University of Washington), Aubreya Adams (Colgate University), and Geoff Abers (Cornell University)

We are excited to invite you to attend a pre-AGU GeoPRISMS Mini-Workshop focused on the Alaska Amphibious Seismic Community Experiment.

In 2018 the Alaska Amphibious Community Seismic Experiment (AACSE) will be deployed across the Alaskan subduction interface and Aleutian arc, in the Alaska Peninsula region; the project plan can be found on its webpage. All data are open and available as soon as they are recovered and processed, so abundant research opportunities exist with these data.

This mini-workshop is designed to communicate regional science goals and logistical plans for AACSE and a number of other concurrent projects in the region, with the aim of developing synergies and fostering further planning among the broader community. It will highlight opportunities for participation through the apply-to-sail and other educational programs, and opportunities for a regionally targeted, multi-disciplinary set of studies that would take advantage of AACSE and other infrastructure.

During the workshop we will also invite contributions from the open community via “popup” talks on related research or opportunities.

If you would like to present a ~5 minute popup talk, please communicate you interest here by December 3rd.

We look forward to seeing you in New Orleans.
