Now is the time to contribute your feedback on the virtual Marine
Seismology Symposium to be held in Spring 2021. We would like to hear from
you, our attendees, about what kind of events and topics would be most
useful and exciting. *Please fill out this short survey by Tuesday
night! *(either
URL should work, only submit one response)*: *

The uncertainty of travel restrictions in response to the COVID-19 pandemic
has required us to revisit our plans for the Marine Seismology Symposium.
We will be postponing any in-person events until a later date, and we will
now proceed with virtual events to be held in Spring 2021. This will
include several sessions held over 1-2 weeks with presentations and
discussions covering scientific topics as well as operational topics,
breakout discussions, panels, and other ways to participate.

The Marine Seismology Symposium will enable participants to share exciting
new science results, discuss future directions and key scientific
questions, promote and empower early career scientists by showcasing their
work and providing networking opportunities, and communicate changes to
critical marine seismic infrastructure so that research can be successfully
planned, funded, and conducted using existing and evolving tools. This
symposium is critical for growing and broadening the marine seismic
research community and will facilitate progress toward better understanding
of frontier science topics such as the processes related to geohazards like
megathrust earthquakes, tsunamis, undersea landslides, and volcanic
eruptions as well as the processes that control the formation and evolution
of ocean basins. This effort is supported by funding from the National
Science Foundation under OCE award #1939512.

Comments are welcome and we encourage you to get in touch with the
organizing committee members with any suggestions, questions, or concerns.

Looking forward to seeing you virtually in 2021!
