Please consider a submission to Special Session S06 at the Joint Assembly. We are particularly interested in presentations highlighting international collaborative work, and capacity development in the geophysical sciences and monitoring infrastructure.


Seeds of Cooperation: Geophysical monitoring networks, international collaborations and sustainable scientific growth.

Recent investments in seismological and geodetic monitoring networks support cross-border collaborations in research and education as well as sustainable scientific capacity-building in countries throughout Latin America and the Caribbean. International cooperation in data collection has led to improvements in natural hazard risk assessments, resource management, and the growth of scientific capacity and a technical workforce. This session will explore policy and technical aspects of network deployments and inter-network data exchange, integration of national and global networks, the development of regional and international data management systems, and the utility of data products for basic scientific research, education and natural hazard risk reduction. In particular, the session will highlight successful collaborations in seismology and tectonophysics from scientific and policy perspectives.
