On behalf of workshop organizers Amanda Thomas (Univ. of Oregon) and Eric Dunham (Stanford Univ.), I’d like to invite you to apply to participate in the MCS RCN’s Megathrust Modeling Workshop here: https://forms.gle/TL8AkvUw9SdQhen59.
The workshop is part of an NSF-funded Research Coordination Network (RCN) program, “Planning for a Modeling Collaboratory for Subduction Zone Science (MCS).” The objective of the program is to formulate a plan to develop an integrative modeling framework for both earthquake and volcano systems through three workshops and a series of webinars.
The Megathrust Modeling Workshop will focus on assessing the critical aspects of faulting, earthquake sequences and aseismic slip, and megathrust rupture dynamics that should be included in the future integrative community modeling framework for subduction zones.
Our three main sessions will focus on:
- Modeling earthquake sequences and aseismic slip
- Modeling dynamic ruptures and tsunamis
- Geodynamic and surface processes
Confirmed speakers include: Alice Gabriel, Shuoshuo Han, Shuo Ma, Tatsuhiko Saito, Ylona van Dinther, Camilla Cattania, Victor Cruz-Atienza, Jessica Hawthorne, Jean-Arthur Olive, Noah Finnegan, and Kelin Wang.
The main workshop will be held at the University of Oregon in Eugene, October 7-9, 2019, ending with a half-day session on the final morning. There will be a special session focused toward early career scientists (ECS) on October 6, with presentations by Jean-Philippe Avouac, Eric Dunham, and Thorsten Becker.
Some funding will be available for travel support. More information is available at our website.
