Connecting Early Career Researchers in Subduction Zone Science

We are thrilled to share some exciting developments from the SZ4Grads community! Here's a quick summary of what we've been up to:

1. Introducing SZ4Grads Chile-Argentina

We are excited to announce the creation of a new branch within the SZ4Grads network: SZ4Grads Chile-Argentina. Chilean and Argentinian early-career researchers lead this connection focused on engaging graduate students and early-career researchers who live in Chile and Argentina and are excited to get involved with SZ4D.

2. GSA Session Evolution: New Name and Collaboration**

Our SZ4Grads GSA session has transformed! It has now merged with other sessions to form a comprehensive event titled "Subduction Zone Processes in the Evolution of Ophiolites, Continental Crust and Orogenic Belts." This exciting development allows for a broader exploration of topics related to subduction zones and their geological implications.

3.  AGU Session Goes eLightning: Stay Tuned!
