Tomorrow: GeoPRISMS Townhall and Community/Student Forum at AGU

Join us for the GeoPRISMS Townhall Meeting and Community / Student Forum at the 2015 AGU Fall Meeting!

When: AGU Fall Meeting 2015 – Monday December 14 at 6:00 PM

Where: The Park Central Hotel (formerly Westin Market Street) 50 Third Street – Franciscan Ballroom

The event is open to all with interests in the GeoPRISMS Program and GeoPRISMS (or MARGINS) research. Come hear updates about the GeoPRISMS Program, the latest GeoPRISMS research projects & study areas, and ongoing GeoPRISMS research from student presenters.

    * A short formal session (starting at 6:30pm) will include welcome opening remarks from the GeoPRISMS Chair Peter van Keken and updates from NSF Program Manager Jenn Wade.
    * Erin Wirth (University of Washington) will provide a summary of the GeoPRISMS Theoretical & Experimental Institute for the SCD Intiative that took place last October in California.
    * Peter Kelemen (Lamont, Columbia University) will present a report of GeoPRISMS Field Research that took place in the Aleutians last summer.
    * Tyrone Rooney (Michigan State University) will give a summary of the RIE Mini-Workshop held the day before AGU.

Student entrants for the GeoPRISMS Prize for Outstanding Student Presentations are also invited to display their AGU posters (or poster versions of their AGU talks) and discuss their research with event participants. This will be a great opportunity for students to share their results further and to interact with a wide spectrum of GeoPRISMS scientists.

There will be ample time to mingle, and refreshments will be available. Among those present will be Peter van Keken (GeoPRISMS Chair), members of the GeoPRISMS Steering and Oversight Committee, and Program Manager for GeoPRISMS from the National Science Foundation.

We hope to see you there!
