Dear Colleagues:

We encourage you to submit an abstract describing your latest research on
intraplate faulting to the session "S17: Progress in Understanding
Intraplate Faulting" at the Fall 2011 AGU meeting.  This session will
highlight recent research on the NMSZ and the 1811­1812 earthquakes.
Contributed abstracts on analog intraplate systems, crustal structure and
seismicity, geodetic observations, geodynamic modeling, and intraplate
earthquake cycles are welcome. The abstract deadline is August 4th, 2011.
The meeting will take place Dec. 5­9th, 2011, in San Francisco, CA.

S17: Progress in Understanding Intraplate Faulting
--------------------------------------------------------------------
Description: During the winter of 1811­1812, the central U.S. suffered three
large earthquakes. The source of these events, the New Madrid seismic zone
(NMSZ), lies far from the plate boundaries of North America. Significant
advances in understanding intraplate systems have occurred, but the causes
of large earthquakes in these settings remain an enigma. In commemoration of
the New Madrid earthquake¹s bicentennial, we invite abstracts addressing
intraplate faulting from a wide range of disciplines. This session will
highlight recent research on the NMSZ and the 1811­1812 earthquakes.
Contributed abstracts on analog intraplate systems, crustal structure and
seismicity, geodetic observations, geodynamic modeling, and intraplate
earthquake cycles are welcome.
