Dear Colleagues,

(our apologies for multi-posting and we appreciate if you distribute among your 

We would like to drawn your attention for the following Geodesy session of 2020 
Fall Meeting (December 7-11th), that will be done virtually.

*Plate Motion, Continental Deformation, and Interseismic Strain Accumulation*/
//We seek studies examining the take up of plate motion in deforming zones and 
the buildup and release of elastic strain along major faults and in subduction 
zones using space geodetic measurements, geologic observations, and geophysical 
data such as seismicity, marine magnetic anomalies, and transform fault 
azimuths. How can GPS and InSAR be integrated to determine deformation in plate 
boundary zones?//
//To what extent can observed elastic strain buildup and past earthquakes be 
used to infer the likelihood of future earthquakes?  Are fault slip rates from 
paleoseismology identical to those from geodetic data?  What fraction of plate 
motion is taken up by fault slip during earthquakes, and what fraction becomes 
part of distributed deformation off the major faults?  How fast are mountains 
currently rising?  To what degree do postseismic transients alter the nearly 
constant velocity of the plates, and how can postseismic transients influence 
the definition of Earth's reference frame?//
On behalf of Sarah, Donald, Jeff and
