Dear Colleagues,

We are excited to announce AGU session T029 "Multiscale imaging of plate
boundary fault systems: integrating geophysical and geological data." Please
consider presenting your research in this session and passing along this
announcement to students and/or colleagues that may be interested.

*Session information:*
T029: Multiscale imaging of plate boundary fault systems: integrating
geophysical and geological data
Session ID#: 50206
<https://agu.confex.com/agu/fm18/prelim.cgi/Session/50206

*Conveners*:
Valerie Sahakian, University of Oregon
Maureen Walton, USGS
Anne Tréhu, Oregon State University
Estelle Chaussard, SUNY Buffalo

*Invited speakers:*
Tim Wright, University of Leeds
Dan Bassett, GNS Science

*Description*:
In the half century since the advent of the plate tectonics paradigm, we
have gained remarkable insights into the underlying physics of plate
boundary systems from substantial increases in observational data and
modeling results. Moving forward, the integration of these data is
essential for a holistic view of tectonic processes and the natural hazards
posed by plate boundaries. We hope to attract new research from different
fields to emphasize the importance of multiscale data integration,
including geophysical studies of seismicity, geodetic observations, source
inversions, structural models, and numerical modeling, as well as geologic
studies of surface processes, geochemical and laboratory analyses, and
paleoseismic observations. We especially encourage multidisciplinary
contributions that emphasize multiscale data integration, but also welcome
focused studies of observations, methodologies, and/or modeling that aim to
improve our understanding of plate boundary systems from the Earth’s
surface through the lithosphere, and their relevance to natural hazards and
society.
