Dear Colleague:

If you are attending the EarthScope National Meeting next week in Raleigh, North Carolina, we encourage you to consider participating in the "Subduction Zone Observatory" breakout session by bringing your ideas and contributing a mini-presentation. More details below.

A Subduction Zone Observatory could be the "next big thing" after EarthScope. Imagine a multi-disciplinary observatory stretching the length of the eastern Pacific, from the Aleutians to Tierra del Fuego and providing a comprehensive suite of onshore and offshore observations to understand the entire subduction zone system. IRIS and UNAVCO have both included in their recent 5-year proposals a conceptual description of a joint SZO as a possible follow-on to EarthScope.  There will be a breakout session at the EarthScope National Meeting on Tuesday at 9:40 AM in room 305A. The goal of the breakout session is to reach a wide-range of disciplines that may be interested in an SZO, and to stimulate further development of the idea and engagement of the international community.  A significant portion of the session will be reserved for attendees to present single-slide, 2-minute talks on their ideas for the SZO, so come prepared with your slide!

Bob Woodward (IRIS), Glen Mattioli (UNAVCO), and Jeff McGuire (WHOI)
