Workshop announcement and registration instructions are below.  Also, consider attending the half-day pre-workshop mini-workshop on the Cascadia Initiative on Sunday, Oct 20, described below. You can register for the mini-workshop along with the workshop.

-------------------------------------------------------
The Ocean Bottom Seismograph Instrument Pool (OBSIP) Management Office will be hosting a workshop to promote the science and applications of ocean bottom seismographs for geophysics research.  A preliminary agenda for the workshop includes sessions on experiment results, OBS technology, international OBS development efforts, and active source waveform inversion technology development.

Current invited speakers for the workshop include:

Workshop on Field Logistics for GeoPRISMS Research in the Aleutian Arc

If you are interested in doing field work in the Aleutian Arc and Alaska, please plan to attend the following Mini-Workshop before the 2013 Fall AGU Meeting.  Please mark your calendars today!

Workshop on Field Logistics for GeoPRISMS Research in the Aleutian Arc

An NSF-supported Workshop on Aleutian Field Logistics, on Sunday, December 8, before the Fall AGU Meeting in San Francisco, will address coordination of logistical resources for field work in the oceanic Aleutian arc and along the Alaska Peninsula.
We will assess the level of available resources and community interest in proposed, shared field support for GeoPRISMS supported research jn the Aleutian arc. In one important option, NSF is considering chartering a ship and an associated helicopter, which would leave Anchorage for the western Aleutians, in a 40 to 60 day round trip, in the summers of 2015 and 2016. NSF-supported investigators would board and disembark as needed, in ports such as Cold Bay, Dutch Harbor, Adak Island, and perhaps other ports, and would use the ship and helicopter to access field sites along the Aleutians.

(1) T205 - From Extension to Rift to Drift: Geological, Geophysical, and Geodynamic Perspectives 
 
Dear Colleague,
 
We are calling to your attention a special session at the national GSA meeting in Denver, October 27-30, session: "T205 >From Extension to Rift to Drift: Geological, Geophysical, and Geodynamic Perspectives". We wish to cross disciplines of numerical modeling, geophysics, and geology to address the question: what are the patterns and drivers of extension in intracontinental extensional provinces, active rift, continental margin, and mid-ocean ridge settings? Specific questions relevant to this topic include how sections of deep crust and upper mantle are exhumed; how detachment faults develop; why some extensional environments are characterized by volcanic extension and others fault-dominated; and what are the variations in basin evolution and crustal structure in various extensional provinces. With nearly a decade of new advances in (deep water) margin research and their analogs preserved in ancient mountain belts, what have we learned and where can we go next? This latter aspect is particularly critical as new geophysical datasets are acquired, numerical models improve at a rapid pace, and new geological field areas are identified. We've invited Dale Sawyer, Jolante Van Wijk, and Geoffroy Mohn to give talks in pursuit of this overall session goal, and hope that you, your students and postdocs, and colleagues will join us.  Abstract deadline is Tuesday, 6 August, 2013.
 
See you in Denver!
Beatrice Magnani, Nick Hayman and Eunseo Choi
