Planning for the SZ4D Initiative: Faulting and Earthquake Cycles

Friday, June 19, 2020, 2:00pm ET

Pre-Registration is required to join this webinar presented by the SZ4D Faulting and Earthquake Cycles Working Group:


After registering, you will receive a confirmation email containing information about joining the meeting.

Please join us for a one-hour informational webinar and dialog about the Faulting and Earthquake Cycles effort in SZ4D. Meet the members of the Working Group and receive an update on the path and progress of this Working Group to define the key elements of a new integrated program on earthquakes and fault systems in subduction zones. You will also have an opportunity to ask questions and offer suggestions and guidance to the Working Group. 

The SZ4D, or Subduction Zones in Four Dimensions, effort is a research-community driven initiative in the US to investigate the processes that underlie subduction zone hazards. An NSF-funded planning group is now working to map out a potential decadal-scale program in integrated science of subduction and seeks wide community input. Within SZ4D, three Working Groups have been convened so far to address major areas of interest:

This is the second in a series of three Friday webinars from SZ4D throughout the month of June. The final webinar will be June 26 and will focus on Landscapes & Seascapes: Surface Processes and Subduction. View past webinars here.

There will be an opportunity for questions during the webinar. If you like, you may also pre-submit a question for the webinar using this form, and we will try to address them during the session.
