Dear colleagues,

We would like to draw your attention to our AGU session: “T034. Multidisciplinary investigations of the Aleutian-Alaska Subduction Zone<https://agu.confex.com/agu/fm19/prelim.cgi/Session/72464>”. Recent initiatives including EarthScope and GeoPRISMS have generated a wealth of new data in the region, providing a unique opportunity for integrated studies of this dynamic subduction system. We aim to highlight and facilitate such studies by bringing together contributions from geology, geophysics, geochemistry, volcanology, rock physics, geochronology, tectonics, and geodynamics.
Please consider contributing to our session.
Invited Speakers:
Geoffrey Abers (Cornell University), Jessica Larsen (University of Alaska, Fairbanks)

Submission Deadline: 31 July, 2019 at 23:59 EDT.
Please submit your abstracts to: https://agu.confex.com/agu/fm19/prelim.cgi/Session/72464

We look forward to seeing you in San Francisco!

Full Session Description:
The Aleutian-Alaska subduction zone (AASZ) is marked by lateral variations in the subducting and overriding plates, subduction obliquity, magma composition, and eruption frequency. It is home to 54 historically active volcanoes, a volcanic gap associated with flat slab subduction, and abundant subduction-related seismicity. The AASZ is an ideal place to address a variety of subduction-related questions, most effectively through cross-disciplinary collaborations. This AGU session aims to facilitate sharing of new data and results across disciplines to help elucidate AASZ processes including but not limited to characteristics of the slab; seismogenesis and fault slip behavior; upper plate deformation processes; magma generation, fluid/volatile transport, and eruption processes; and linkages between processes. We invite contributions investigating the AASZ involving geology, geophysics, geochemistry, volcanology, rock physics, geochronology, tectonics, and geodynamics, with a particular interest in studies integrating results from multiple disciplines and/or across scales.
