Dear Colleagues,

We would like to announce an SZ4D MCS workshop<> focused on the computational challenges associated with modeling surface processes at subduction zones. The workshop will foster discussion of existing and needed models, modeling capabilities and infrastructure to help resolve SZ4D Landscapes and Seascapes (L&S) primary science driver questions: (1) How do events within Earth's atmosphere, hydrosphere, and solid-earth generate, consume and transport sediment across subduction-zone landscapes and seascapes? and (2) What fraction of a subduction zone's energy budget goes into building and shaping subduction zone land- and seascapes? More broadly, the workshop will be a venue to discuss modeling challenges in geomorphology and how the community could better organize - including training and focused research efforts - to address these challenges.

The workshop will be held virtually via Zoom, 9a-1p PDT / 12-4p EDT on October 18 & 19, 2021. Please register here<> by October 11.

Each day will begin with a series of short talks, followed by discussion and breakout sessions.  Community feedback from this workshop will inform the final SZ4D MCS RCN Report (to be prepared in December 2021) and the eventual structure of the MCS.

More information including a tentative workshop schedule can be found at We look forward to seeing you online!

Thank you,

Mark Behn (Boston College)
Leif Karlstrom (University of Oregon)
