The U.S. Geological Survey invites you to a Subduction Zone Science workshop in Seattle at the University of Washington from January 10-11, 2023.

Workshop themes align with three USGS subduction zone science and hazard priorities (relevant to earthquakes, volcanoes, landslides, tsunami and cascading phenomena):

  1. new observations and models of subduction zone processes,
  2. quantification of natural hazards and risk, and
  3. forecasting and situational awareness.

The meeting agenda includes keynotes, contributed short-format talks and posters (contributions noted on the registration form), and discussions focusing on critical needs, research priorities, and plans for a cross-discipline community of practice.

Travel support is available for a limited number of early career participants and for USGS scientists. Reach out to Kirstie Haynie with questions/comments.

We hope to see you in Seattle!
