[CIG-ALL] Amphibious Geophysical Session at 2019 AGU Fall Meeting

Dear Colleagues —

Please consider submitting an abstract to the session below at the 2019 AGU Fall Meeting in San Francisco.

The session will bring together researchers with new results from the exciting amphibious (offshore-onshore) geophysical experiments that have been undertaken in recent years and the unique challenges and advantages that come with crossing the coastline. We welcome submissions from a range of disciplines including, but not limited to, seismology, geodesy, and magnetotellurics. Please get in touch with any of the conveners if you have any questions.

Best Regards,

Joshua, Helen, Colton, and Kasey

T012 - Crossing Coastlines: Emerging Science from Amphibious Geophysical Experiments

Submit an Abstract to this SessionThe past decade has seen a proliferation of amphibious (offshore-onshore) geophysical experiments aimed at scientific targets such as capturing the structure and evolution of active and passive margins, characterizing the seismic cycle and risk at subduction zones, and monitoring volcanic eruptions. Recent community efforts include the Cascadia Initiative, the Eastern North American Margin Community Seismic Experiment, and the Alaska Amphibious Community Seismic Experiment, as well as numerous studies at GeoPRISMS focus sites and initiatives led internationally. Amphibious geophysical datasets must overcome unique complications while collecting observations and synthesizing analyses across coastlines to resolve complex tectonic phenomena otherwise obscured by land-sea boundaries. This session will showcase the latest science emerging from these recent amphibious experiments including, but not limited to, seismology, geodesy, and magnetotellurics as well as interdisciplinary collaborations and innovative methodologies/techniques. This session aims to connect a diverse cross-section of the geophysics community spanning a wide range of tectonic regions.
