Dear colleagues,
The 4th Regional Assembly of the Latin American and Caribbean Seismological Commission (LACSC) will take place this year, October 3-5, in Quito, Ecuador. The meeting will be in hybrid format (both on-line and in-person). The full list of technical sessions is on the website, and abstract submission is now open and will close on Monday 11 of July. Please consider submitting an abstract to our session on Subduction Zones and Forearc Processes along Latin America, and do not hesitate to pass this email among those colleagues and students that might be interested.

See you all in Quito!

LACSC-3 - Subduction Zone I: Forearc Processes along Latin America
Subduction zones in Latin America, including those in Central and South America, present a great diversity of seismotectonic phenomena. The forearc, in particular, concentrates a wide range of along-strike segmentation, deformation regime, structural characteristics of both the subducting and overriding plates, and slip behavior. Recent years have seen an increase of onshore/offshore experiments tackling issues such as fluid content and interaction between seismic and aseismic slip processes. Moreover, it is now common to observe a great diversity of slip behavior along the interface, including slow slip events, tremors, repeating earthquakes, and earthquake swarms. In this session, we invite contributions studying the variety of seismotectonic processes that take place in the subduction forearc, and their effects on permanent and elastic deformation along the margin. We welcome both theoretical and observational studies, including experiments using passive and active seismology, and geodesy.
