2017 Theoretical and Experimental Institute for the RIE Initiative – Save the date!

Please save the date and plan to attend the GeoPRISMS Rift Initiation and Evolution Theoretical and Experimental Institute!

We are pleased to announce that we will hold a Theoretical and Experimental Institute (TEI) for the Rift Initiation and Evolution Initiative (RIE) from February 8 to 10, 2017 at the Hotel Albuquerque in Albuquerque, New Mexico. The TEI will be preceded by symposium for early career scientists (including advanced graduate students and post-docs) on February 7, and will be followed by an optional field trip on February 11.

This TEI will allow the community to discuss progress towards the science objectives of the RIE initiative, including observations, modeling and experiments from the EARS and ENAM primary sites and other rift localities, to continue planning for new domestic and international collaborative work, and entrain new talent and disciplines.

We expect to be able to cover lodging and food for 80-90 participants and have partial travel funding available for graduate students, early career scientists and invited speakers. The preliminary schedule and application form will be announced in September. We expect that the application deadline will be in early November with participants selected before Fall AGU.

Please save the date and plan to join us!
