Announcing CIG 2019-2020 Webinar Series

Dear Colleagues,

We are pleased to announce the 2019-2020 CIG Webinar Series, which will begin on November 14, 2019.

In contrast to previous years, the upcoming webinar series will highlight the cutting edge observations and data sets that drive geodynamic modelling investigations.

The list of topics includes global fault data sets, basin analysis, hazard assessment, global and regional seismology, surface processes, upper mantle and lithosphere igneous petrology, and geodynamic inversions.

Our hope is that these presentations will help drive new cross-disciplinary collaborations and highlight future research directions for the geodynamic modelling community.
