Dear Colleagues,

We would like to draw your attention to the following special session  
at this fall's AGU:

S11:  Geophysical Structure and Dynamics of the Western United States

Sponsor:  Seismology

Co-sponsors:  Tectonophysics, Volcanology, Geochemistry, and  
Petrology, Mineral and Rock Physics

Broad ranges of geological and geophysical datasets are currently  
being collected and geodynamical models are in development to provide  
new constraints on the structure and dynamics of the western United  
States. The rich and complex tectonic processes and history of this  
region are still under significant debate, thus obviating the need  
for multidisciplinary examinations. In particular, studies of  
seismological structure, models of regional deformation, and suites  
of new mineralogical and petrological data will provide the improved  
collection of constraints necessary to provide new insights into this  
enigmatic region. New observations and models from seismology,  
geodynamics, mineral physics, and petrology as they relate to this  
region are encouraged, particularly those which marry complementary  
datasets and methodologies.
