Marine Seismology Symposium
Virtual

Overview

Oceans and other water bodies cover over 70% of Earth's surface, shrouding critical geologic regimes, natural resource deposits, and ecosystems. Obtaining a deeper understanding of the processes occurring on Earth requires unique strategies and innovative technologies, as well as strong collaborations across the shoreline, between scientific disciplines, and through international and industry partnerships. To address this priority, a virtual science-focused symposium will be convened uniting the seismological and marine geoscience community.

The Marine Seismology Symposium will enable participants to share exciting new science results, discuss future directions and key scientific questions, promote and empower early career scientists by showcasing their work and providing networking opportunities, and communicate changes to critical marine seismic infrastructure so that research can be successfully planned, funded, and conducted using existing and evolving tools. This symposium is critical for growing and broadening the marine seismic research community and will facilitate progress toward better understanding of frontier science topics such as the processes related to geohazards like megathrust earthquakes, tsunamis, undersea landslides, and volcanic eruptions as well as the processes that control the formation and evolution of ocean basins. 

This symposium is supported by funding from the National Science Foundation under award OCE-1939512.

The website for this symposium is now open at https://marineseismology.us2.pathable.com/.

There is no registration fee for this meeting but you must register to participate. Full registration is now closed but we will add late registrations as attendees-only until our attendance limit is reached.
