SZNet Virtual Workshop

Legacy Data Workshop

October 21-25, 2024

Keynotes and breakout session times to be announced


Workshop Objectives

The Legacy Data Virtual Workshop aims to start a conversation about historical data that requires archiving and data management. This conversation is critical to SZNet's larger goal of making historical data accessible to all and encouraging an equitable global partnership amongst the subduction zone geohazards community.

DATES: The virtual workshops will scheduled over the course of the week of October 21st to accommodate busy schedules and diverse time zones.

GOALS:  SZNet's first mission is to compare observations of subduction zones around the globe with a common dataset. Towards this goal, SZNet will work in partnership with EarthScope to develop a web portal to bind  different data repositories under a single umbrella to make them easily accessible to the the wider international community. This activity is essential to the collaborative goals of SZNet because:

(1) differential access to data management services is a major hurdle to an equitable global partnership,

(2) surfacing historic data allows for meaningful comparison across subduction zones by international scientists, especially for geologic processes where long-term records across decades are essential.

(3) geohazards research is disproportionately affected by information from rare, extreme events. Fully representing these events in the global archive is essential.

The Legacy Data Virtual Workshop aims to start a conversation about legacy data in preparation of an in person workshop in Spring 2025. The in person workshop will aim to bring to light historical data that should be archived in this data portal. Outcomes will be a plan to archive and enable global access to existing data to complement current efforts and fill in the earthquake, eruptive and sedimentary cycles.

STRUCTURE: The workshop will span a week and will feature both discussion sessions and keynote talks. A detailed agenda will be released prior to the event.

REGISTRATION: Registration will be required for this event. Please check this pace!
