Dear Colleagues,

We are organizing a weekly seminar series this semester, “Alaska EarthScope and Beyond”, which will be part of efforts leading up to an Alaska EarthScope synthesis workshop this summer. Seminars will be held each Monday at 3pm eastern (2pm central, 1pm mountain, noon Pacific, 11am Alaska), for one hour.

Registration is required for the seminars, with the registration link for the first being:

We will decide by early February whether to plan for a purely virtual workshop in the May-June timeframe, or a late summer in-person workshop with additional virtual components. Either way, we will have weekly seminars on science related to the broad EarthScope science goals, especially those using EarthScope, GeoPRISMS, and Alaska Amphibious Community Seismic Experiment data and projects in Alaska and adjacent regions of Canada. As the semester goes on, we will aim to stimulate some active working groups leading up to the summer workshop event(s).

The speakers for the first three seminars have been set, and we are issuing a general call for volunteers and/or nominations for additional speakers. If you are a volunteer or have a nomination, send those to Julie Elliott (julieelliott<at><julieelliott<at>>). Talks may be full length or 30 minutes, depending on the number of suggestions.

We have a specific mailing list set up for this series – broad announcements will be sent out only during the first few weeks. If you want to be on the mailing list for the whole semester and all synthesis events, send an email request to Sarah Roeske (smroeske<at><smroeske<at>>).
