Dear Community Members:
Please mark your calendars for the coming UNAVCO Science Meeting, to be held February 28 – March 1, 2011, in Boulder, Colorado. Note that the meeting will be three full days this year, so don't book out until after Thursday's afternoon session....   The wealth of topics just keeps growing.  
In planning this meeting, the organizing committee has intentionally designed the program to showcase scientific advances and opportunities both in the core areas of the UNAVCO community and in some exciting but traditionally less represented fields such as hydrogeology and seafloor geodesy.  Back by popular demand, each session will feature a talk that focuses on education or outreach. 
The  six plenary sessions will be organized around the following (exact wording may be further refined):
·         Glaciology, ice loss, and isostacy
                Chair:  Leigh Stearns, University of Kansas; Co-chair:  Joe Pettit, UNAVCO
·         Exploring landscape dynamics with terrestrial imaging: From tectonics to surface processes
                Chair:  Anne Egger, Central Washington University; Co-chair:  David Phillips, UNAVCO
·         Hydrogeodesy
                Chair:  Kristine Larson, CU Boulder; Co-chair:  Chuck Meertens, UNAVCO
·         Seafloor geodesy, innovative and collaborative sea floor observing facilities
Chair:  TBD; Co-chair:  Andy Newman, Georgia Tech
·         High-rate GPS seismology and strainmeter observations 
                Chair:  Susan Owen, JPL; Co-chair:  Dave Mencin, UNAVCO
·         Volcanic processes and deformation
Chair:  Matt Pritchard, Cornell; Co-chair:  Adrian Borsa, UNAVCO
We are excited about this format and are writing to solicit your thoughts for the special topics sessions (STS)  for four breakout sessions.  These have historically included focused science, technology, education, outreach, regional or project interest, etc.  
Please send topics for the breakout STS sessions, with the name of the convener (or conveners), a sentence or two of description, and your guess estimate of the number of attendees expected to Jaime Magliocca (Magliocca at unavco.org) no later than January 6, 2012.  The 2010 topics are appended to stimulate your thinking!
