Hello Subduction Community,

If you will be in New Orleans for AGU, please consider attending a Lunchtime Town Hall on Thursday Dec 14 on the Coordination of Subduction Hazard Science. This is an informational session, including discussion about future efforts to coordinate the community to further the study of subduction hazards.

TH43H: Coordination of Subduction Hazard Science

Thursday, 14 December 2017
12:30 - 13:30
New Orleans Ernest N. Morial Convention Center - 255-257

Over the past year the academic community, the USGS, and international partners have joined together to advance subduction zone science, particularly the physical processes that underlie earthquake, volcano, tsunami and landslide hazards. Several recent reports shine light on key scientific problems in the study of subduction-related hazards that will require national and international coordination for major research progress. These include a vision document to the NSF: The SZ4D Initiative: Understanding the Processes that Underlie Subduction Zone Hazards in 4D; a USGS Plan: Reducing Risk Where Tectonic Plates Collide; the NAS Report: ERUPT; and a new NASA Decadal Survey. This Town Hall seeks to gather geoscientists of all disciplines who study subduction processes and phenomena and associated societal hazards, including early career scientists and students, to discuss future funding initiatives and coordination activities in furthering subduction hazard science. The format will include short presentations by authors of the above reports and agency representatives, followed by a panel discussion open to questions from the audience.
