On September 29-October 1, a Workshop on Subduction Zone Observatories
is being held to gather community input to NSF on a potential suite of
activities needed to address a wide range of scientific questions
associated with subduction zones. More information about the meeting can
be found at the following link:

*Anyone may submit white papers to the workshop website until 9/23.*

In preparation for the SZO workshop there will be four webinars (from
September 20th-22nd) focused on different groups of subduction zones
around the world. These are open to anyone who would like to participate
even if you cannot make the workshop. The goal of these webinars is
three fold: 1) to get people thinking before the workshop about what
scientific targets would be most important to potentially pursue in
different locations; 2) to collect input from scientists who will not be
at the workshop; 3) to begin discussing ways that international
collaborations might be enhanced in those regions. Each webinar will
involve a few short presentations about possible SZO opportunities and
then time for open discussion. The webinars are being organized by small
groups of workshop attendees who will summarize the discussion at the
workshop and provide input to the workshop report. Based on the workshop
applications, a number of regions have widespread interest for future
work, and we have grouped them into four webinars based on logistical
