Dear Colleagues,

Please consider submitting an abstract to the session we have organized to
highlight the scientific and infrastructure big ideas that have and will
continue to enable progress in deep Earth research. The session is, in
part, intended to commemorate the contributions of Adam Dziewonski.

The invited presenters are Hitoshi Kawakatsu and Peter Olson.


Ved Lekic on behalf of the conveners.

DI010: Pillars of Deep Earth Research: Accomplishments, Limitations, and
the Road Ahead
Session ID#: 13048

Session Description:
Much of the progress in our understanding of Earth’s deep interior in the
last 3 decades has been enabled by a handful of big ideas, both conceptual
and related to infrastructure development. These include: investigating the
long-wavelength structure of the mantle and linking it to mantle dynamics;
systematically characterizing earthquakes around the globe through moment
tensor analysis; and, creating reference seismological models of Earth
structure for use in mineral physics and geodynamics. Additionally, these
big ideas centered on creating systems for acquiring and openly
distributing globally relevant high-quality data, establishing a culture of
data sharing, and educating the next generation of interdisciplinary
scientists. We invite submissions from across disciplines that: 1. address
new insights into large scale deep Earth structure and processes; 2.
identify limitations of, suggest improvements to, and/or propose the next
generation of approaches, observations, and systems that will inform global
deep Earth studies over the coming decades.
