Dear UNAVCO Community,
GSA will hold its 125th anniversary meeting in Denver from Oct 27-30, 2013. Abstracts are due Aug 6 (same as AGU). One of the Pardee Keynote Symposia is for EarthScope. It would be grand to have lots of excellent geodetic PBO submissions for the symposia and additional submissions to other relevant sessions. 

Below are descriptions of the Pardee Symposium (and another related symposium) and the 2 sessions specifically sponsored by EarthScope. There are many more relevant sessions at GSA that you can see on the meeting webpage.
Hope to see you in Denver in October, Linda

Pardee Keynote Symposia

P2. 125 Anniversary Pardee Symposium: Advances in Understanding Earth Structure and Process from EarthScope
GSA Geophysics Division
Eugene D. Humphreys, University of Oregon

The three components of EarthScope—the seismic USArray, the geodetic Plate Boundary Observatory, and deep drilling of the San Andreas fault—provide observations that give earth scientists truly unprecedented access to the inner workings of continents and the deeper Earth. This symposium will highlight work using EarthScope data that has advanced our understanding of Earth structure and process, often with fundamentally surprising insight.

 P5. Evolution of the North American Cordilleran Lithosphere

GSA Structural Geology and Tectonics Division; Geochemical Society; GSA Geophysics Division
Anne F. Sheehan, University of Colorado; Christine Siddoway, Colorado College; Basil Tikoff, University of Wisconsin

This session focuses on the geodynamic evolution of the North American Cordillera with an emphasis on the U.S. West. Its goal is to integrate the entire tectonic history of the region on the crustal to lithospheric scale, emphasizing the relationship of ongoing geological phenomena to the lithospheric architecture inherited from past geological events.

T181. Modern Techniques, Models, and Interpretations of Ancient Orogens: 125 Years of Progress in Understanding the Grenville and Appalachian Orogens of Eastern North America
GSA Structural Geology and Tectonics Division; GSA Geophysics Division; GSA Mineralogy, Geochemistry, Petrology, and Volcanology Division; GSA History and Philosophy of Geology Division; Precambrian - At Large; EarthScope; USGS National Cooperative Geologic Mapping Program; Geochemical Society
Chris Holm-Denoma, Arthur Merschat

The Grenville and Appalachian orogens are the most profound tectonic elements of eastern North America. We invite contributions that use modern techniques and interpretations to add to a knowledge base spanning more than 125 years.

T189. The Basement Complex (or Complex Basement): What Is It? How Is It Formed, Conserved, and Modified? And How Are Mineral Resources and Geologic Hazards Distributed Within It?
GSA Mineralogy, Geochemistry, Petrology, and Volcanology Division; GSA Structural Geology and Tectonics Division; GSA Geophysics Division; Society of Economic Geologists; Precambrian - At Large; EarthScope; USGS Mineral Resources Program; Geochemical Society
Chris Holm-Denoma, Karen Lund

We seek presentations that explore and explain processes related to the growth (accretion), conservation (non-destructive preservation), and modification (thickening and/or differentiating = “cratonizing”) of juvenile crust to form continental basement and distribute resources and hazards.
