EarthScope MT Transportable Array Siting Workshop
Sheraton Raleigh Hotel Raleigh NC, Raleigh, NC, USA

Organized by the IRIS Electromagnetic Working Group



By the end of 2013, the USArray magnetotelluric (MT) Transportable Array (TA) will have covered ~25% of the continental US. Proposed funding for 2014-2018 should result in coverage of an additional 25% of the lower-48. The goal of this workshop is to set priority areas within the continental US for future deployments of the MT-TA. We seek participation from across the spectrum of EarthScope science, including the MT, geology, seismology, and geodynamics communities to discuss and define priority areas which will further our understanding of the assembly and modification of the crust and mantle beneath North America.
