Special AGU session on EarthScope in Alaska and Canada
Dear colleagues:

Please consider submitting your abstracts to this 2018 Fall AGU special

Title -
Emerging Science from the EarthScope Transportable Array in Alaska and

Session Description -
The USArray Transportable Array roll-out in Alaska and Canada was completed
in the fall of 2017. It consists of 194 telemetered broadband seismic and
infrasound stations designed for an approximately two-year deployment as an
EarthScope-supported facility. This unprecedented systematic broadband
coverage of the entirety of continental Alaska and far northwestern Canada
provides the seismological community with a dataset intended to help
illuminate long-standing questions and aid in new discoveries. The diverse
tectonic environment of Alaska and northwest Canada provides a world-class
setting for investigating seismicity, plate boundaries, distributed
intraplate deformation, shallow subduction, active volcanism, infrasound
phenomena, and myriad other earth processes. This session welcomes studies
using all or part of this new community asset to investigate structures
ranging from the crust to core, active tectonics, local, regional and
teleseismic earthquakes or other elastic wave sources, and seismic wave
