EarthScope Alaska Synthesis and the Canadian EON-ROSE initiative

Two workshops will be held in May 2020, with a 2-day field trip linking them. It will be possible to attend either one independently, but attending both and the field trip will be even better. Financial support will be available, with further information about application procedure to come. Right now we are collecting expressions of interest to help with planning.

If you are interested, please fill out the following Google form so that we can update you when the application for participation is ready:


May 15-16 (Fri-Sat) EarthScope Alaska Synthesis Workshop, Juneau Alaska
May 17-18 (Sun-Mon) Field trip, Juneau to Whitehorse via Haines and Kluane Lake
May 19-21 (Tue-Thurs) EON-ROSE workshop, Whitehorse (YT, Canada)

The Alaska Synthesis workshop will aim to bring together researchers who have worked on studies related to EarthScope science goals in Alaska, to synthesize and integrate ideas and findings across disciplines. This workshop will be similar to the other EarthScope Synthesis Workshops (, which have been held on a variety of topics.

EON-ROSE (Earth-System Observing Network – Réseau d’Observation du Système terrestrE) is an initiative representing one possible model for driving Earth System Science to support sustainable development for our planet ( This pan-Canadian research collaboration, which aims to holistically examine Earth systems from the magnetosphere (the region of space that contains the earth’s magnetic field) deep into the mantle (the layer between the earth’s crust and its liquid molten core), is currently seeking additional collaborators. The intention is to start EON-ROSE with a focus on the Canadian Cordillera, and a deployment of a Canadian Cordillera Array (

The EON-ROSE workshop in Whitehorse will bring together scientists from a range of disciplines including seismology, geodesy, geology, space weather, critical zone studies, and more, in an effort to move the initiative forward and better define synergies between disciplines.
