Dear IRIS community,
We would like to invite you to submit an abstract to our AGU Fall meeting
session titled 'Linking Structure and Dynamics of Subduction Zones Across
Scales'. Please see the session abstract below for further details.

Thank you,
Miles Bodmer (University of Oregon)
Brandon VanderBeek (Università di Padova)

Subduction zones are responsible for the largest earthquakes, volcanic
eruptions, and tsunamis on earth and are key to the convective cycling of
earth’s materials. The dynamics responsible for these processes and their
variability within and among different subduction settings remain poorly
understood but their identification is critical to improving hazard
assessment and mitigation. Hypotheses for different observed seismic and
volcanic behaviors are wide-ranging, invoking over-riding crustal
architecture, plate interface properties, subduction inputs, and mantle
dynamics as important parameters and requiring links over broad spatial and
temporal scales. Recent efforts collecting dense shore-crossing data and
modeling complexities of convergent plate interaction have advanced our
understanding of subduction processes and their interrelations. This
session will bring together contributions from seismology, geodesy,
geodynamics, electromagnetics, structural geology, geochemistry, and others
that highlight properties of subduction zones from the mantle to the crust
and their influence on the behavior of the system.
