Planning for the SZ4D Initiative: Meet the Landscapes & Seascapes Working Group
June 26th, 2020 at 11 AM PDT
A webinar by the Landscapes and Seascapes working group
This is a recording of the June 19th webinar Planning for the SZ4D Initiative: Meet the Landscapes & Seascapes Working Group, including the Q&A session near the end.
For more information, see the Landscapes & Seascapes page.
Webinar description: In this one-hour webinar, you will learn about what SZ4D is, meet the Landscapes and Seascapes working group, and learn about their efforts to develop a vision and framework to study the impacts of great subduction zone earthquakes and volcanic eruptions on sediment generation and transport and the building and shaping of landscapes and seascapes. There will be ample time reserved for Q&A. We look forward to your suggestions, feedback, and guidance. Come join us!
The SZ4D, or Subduction Zones in Four Dimensions, effort is a research-community driven initiative in the U.S. to investigate the processes that underlie subduction zone hazards. An NSF-funded planning group is now working to map out a potential decadal-scale program in integrated science of subduction and seeks wide community input. Within SZ4D, three Working Groups have been convened so far to address major areas of interest:
Faulting & Earthquake Cycles
Magmatic Drivers of Eruption
Landscapes & Seascapes: Surface Processes and Subduction
This was the last in a series of four webinars from SZ4D over the summer (in one week intervals).
There was an opportunity for questions during the webinar. If you have additional questions please email or the appropriate Interest Group co-chairs (contact information is available at the bottom of the interest group pages).
