Save the date: MCS Megathrust Modeling Workshop

Megathrust Modeling Workshop – October 7-9, 2019 -

Dear colleagues,

Please save the date for the Modeling Collaboratory for Subduction (MCS) Research Collaboration Network’s (RCN) second workshop, which will focus on Modeling Subduction Zone Megathrusts . The MCS RCN was funded by NSF in autumn 2018 to explore the establishment of an integrative community modeling framework for subduction (see

The Megathrust Modeling Workshop will run from October 7-9, 2019, at the University of Oregon in Eugene. Remote participation will be available for those who cannot attend in person.

We aim to bring together a diverse group of scientists interested in modeling the megathrust at any spatial or temporal scale, to identify the disconnects and knowledge gaps in current megathrust models, and to synthesize existing modeling efforts.

To be the first to hear more about this and other MCS workshops, please sign up for our mailing list at For more information, email
