Dear Colleagues,

We wish to draw your attention to the following 2018 Fall AGU session.

*V029: **
New Insights into Oceanic Spreading Centers from Seafloor Observatories*

Oceanic spreading centers are complex settings in which geological,
biological and oceanographic processes all interact. The challenges of
understanding these systems and of capturing the volcanic and tectonic
events responsible for forming the ocean crust has led to the establishment
of longterm multidisciplinary seafloor observatories (e.g., Ocean
Observatories Initiative, Ocean Networks Canada, European Multidisciplinary
Seafloor and water column Observatory). The resulting datasets require
exploration, integration, and modeling at a level that cumulatively must
transcend traditional disciplinary boundaries. The goal of this session is
to bring together the broad research community working on data from
seafloor observatories and complementary experiments at oceanic spreading
centers to understand 1) magma supply, storage and emplacement 2) the
dynamic hydrothermal system that link the geosphere to the ocean and 3) the
associated seafloor ecosystems. We particularly encourage submissions that
seek to integrate and model disparate data sets.
