SZ4D hosted two mini-workshops at the AGU Fall Meeting

SZ4D hosted two mini-workshops the Sunday before the 2023 AGU Fall Meeting in San Francisco. SZ4D Mini-Workshops offer excellent opportunities to jump-start science discussions and coordinate collaborative efforts focusing on the science questions laid out in the Implementation Plan. The two half-day mini-workshops were open and free to all. The workshops were well attended with 40 participants on Sunday morning and over 80 in the afternoon. All presentations and meeting reports are available on the SZ4D website.

We would love to hear from you. Please email us if you have any questions or input you would like to share. Stay tuned for more community events!

Prioritizing Community Efforts on Arc Magmatism in Cascadia and the Aleutians


Organizers: Geoff Abers (Cornell University), Ben Black (Rutgers University), Adam Kent (Oregon State University), Madison Myers (Montana State University), Mike Poland (US Geological Survey), John Power (US Geological Survey), Kevin Ward (South Dakota School of Mines and Technology)
