Dear Colleagues,

We would like to direct your attention to the 2020 Seismological Society of America Meeting session "Amphibious Seismic Studies of Plate Boundary Structure and Processes”. This is a great opportunity to bring the controlled source (active) and continuously recording (passive) seismic communities together in our understanding of boundary crossing experiments. Please consider submitting an abstract to this session. The deadline is January 14, 2020.

Thank you,

Amphibious Seismic Studies of Plate Boundary Structure and Processes
Recent years have seen a rapid increase in the number of shore-crossing seismic experiments aimed at characterizing seismicity, deformation and structure at continental margins. Many studies use controlled source imaging in conjunction with continuous recordings of natural seismic sources. Examples of data integration include using ocean-bottom seismometer data in both disciplines and combining results from 7 shallower, high-resolution imaging with deeper, lithospheric-scale studies to understand structures that influence seismicity and plate boundary processes. We invite contributions from the community of seismologists studying plate boundary processes at the transition from onshore to offshore (ocean or lake) environments, including subduction zones, active or relict rifted margins and transform faults.
