Dear All,

Please consider the following AGU session in the Tectonophysics section 
when submitting you abstract in the next week:
The Earthquake Cycle: Linking observations from satellite geodesy, high 
resolution topography and paleoseismology

We are pleased to have the following speakers for the session:
William Hammond
Katherine Scharer
Ingrid Johanson
Angela Landgraf

Kind regards,

John Elliott on behalf of Ryan Gold and Ed Nissen.

This session seeks to integrate paleoseismic, geomorphologic, and 
geodetic datasets to provide a comprehensive understanding of the 
earthquake cycle over a range of timescales. Drawing upon recent 
advances in high-resolution topography, geochronology, and satellite 
geodesy techniques, we will explore fault behavior using datasets that 
span large temporal and spatial scales. We also seek to address the 
constraints that surface observations can place on fault processes 
occurring at depth. We particularly call for abstracts that combine 
these various methods, and exemplify the merits of synergistic studies 
using multi-scale and multi-technique based approaches. We welcome 
contributions that (1) present new constraints on faulting rates, (2) 
explore patterns of stable or temporally varying deformation rates, (3) 
demonstrate the occurrence (or otherwise) of earthquake clustering or 
characteristic earthquakes, and (4) establish the mechanisms controlling 
these behaviors via observation and/or modeling.
