Following the announcement here of a SZO workshop report draft in early 
April, the writing committee has finalized this report after extensive 
community review and input. “The SZ4D Initiative: Understanding the 
Processes that Underlie Subduction Zone Hazards in 4D” document presents 
the range of views discussed at the workshop on the high-priority 
science targets, the critical gaps that are holding back subduction zone 
science, the need for interdisciplinary in-reach and capacity-building 
outreach, and the promising paths forward that the academic, national 
agency, and international communities could pursue in the coming years 
to transform subduction zone science. Taken together, these views lead 
to a vision for a new SZ4D Initiative to capture and model the spatial 
and temporal evolution of subduction zones.

This report and a 1-pager for more general audiences are available 
through the workshop website: 

Jeff McGuire, Terry Plank, and the entire SZO workshop organizing and 
writing team
