Synthesis of Syntheses: A Retrospective and Results of EarthScope Workshops

Date/Time & Location

Thursday, October 10th from 5:30-6:30 PM in the Parlor Room A/B


Kasey Aderhold, IRIS


As part of the National Science Foundation funded EarthScope program, numerous synthesis workshops were convened with assistance from the three EarthScope National Offices: Oregon State University 2007–2011, Arizona State University 2011–2015, and University of Alaska Fairbanks 2015–2019. Synthesis workshops were initiated and executed from within the community, with topics ranging from regionally focused (Cascadia Subduction Zone, San Andreas Fault, Rio Grande Rift, southern Appalachia) to research targets (hydrogeodesy, craton evolution, lithosphere/athenosphere boundary). These workshops fostered interdisciplinary collaborations, research coordination networks, and provided valuable opportunities for early career researchers. This SIG will serve as a venue to review the findings from each EarthScope synthesis workshop and present future directions of active working groups.
