AGU GeoPRISMS Mini-Workshop Alaska Amphibious Community Seismic Experiment – Message from the conveners

We are excited to invite you to attend a pre-AGU GeoPRISMS Mini-Workshop focused on the Alaska Amphibious Seismic Community Experiment.

In 2018 the Alaska Amphibious Community Seismic Experiment (AACSE) will be deployed across the Alaskan subduction interface and Aleutian arc, in the Alaska Peninsula region; the project plan can be found on its webpage. All data are open and available as soon as they are recovered and processed, so abundant research opportunities exist with these data.

This mini-workshop is designed to communicate regional science goals and logistical plans for AACSE and a number of other concurrent projects in the region, with the aim of developing synergies and fostering further planning among the broader community. It will highlight opportunities for participation through the apply-to-sail and other educational programs, and opportunities for a regionally targeted, multi-disciplinary set of studies that would take advantage of AACSE and other infrastructure.

During the workshop we will also invite contributions from the open community via “popup” talks on related research or opportunities.

The workshop will be held at the Westin Canal Place in New Orleans, Sunday December 10, 2017 from 6:00-9:00pm

Please register for the meeting here – deadline for registration is November 21.

If you would like to present a ~5 minute popup talk, please communicate you interest here by December 3rd.

We look forward to seeing you in New Orleans.
