Are you interested in subduction zone science and the SZ4D initiative*? Do you do field work? Do you use
field data or samples? Would you benefit from support for field logistics,
data collection, and collaboration?

Please consider joining an SZ4D workshop on Field
Deployments at GSA on Oct
8, 2022 at the Fall GSA meeting. Support will be available for lodging and
travel, with prioritization for Early Career Scientists.

*What:* 1 day workshop to discuss ideas to build human and physical
infrastructure to support SZ4D* field research

*When:* Oct 8, 9:00 am- 5:00 pm

*Where:* Hyatt Regency, Denver Convention Center

*Why:* There is limited infrastructure to support field data collection.
Such support is required to collect the large-scale data needed to answer
SZ4D research questions, to foster interdisciplinary collaboration, to
engage effectively and respectfully with local groups and scientists, and
to accelerate the pace of research reliant on field data. The community has
expressed needs for: 1) Support for logistical coordination, travel, and
instrumentation. 2) Facilities and support for local sample processing and
analysis. 3) Management of hazardous activities and emergency situations.
4) Support for the collection, archiving, and distribution of publicly
available data and samples. 5) Facilitation of respectful communication and
interaction with local stakeholders.

At this workshop, SZ4D seeks input from the scientific community to discuss
the needs, opportunities, and challenges in developing a community-based
field program, and the infrastructure needed to support such a program.

*How to Apply:* Stay tuned for future SZ4D communications to register for
this workshop.

* The SZ4D initiative is an NSF-funded research
coordination network whose goal is to develop a framework for large scale
investigation of the processes that underlie subduction hazards. SZ4D
integrates across geological, experimental, geophysical, and modelling
fields, and addresses processes related to the location of volcanoes and
the occurrence of eruptions, where and when do large earthquakes happen,
how do faults work, and surficial hazards and landscape evolution.
