SEG-AGU Geophysics of Convergent Margins

12–14 July 2022 | Seattle, WA, USA

About


Workshop Objective

Convergent plate margins are important tectonic environments as these margins (1) host the largest and most destructive earthquakes and related tsunamis as well as the largest volcanic eruptions on Earth and (2) are accompanied by large onshore/offshore basins that are suitable for hydrocarbon preservation. They also represent natural laboratories to study fundamental cycles of the Earth System (e.g. carbon, water, etc.) and the fluid exchange between the Earth and the Ocean. Convergent plate margins are more challenging research environments due to their structural complexity and their dynamic evolution on short time scales. Over the last decade, the development of geophysical imaging and monitoring techniques as well as numerical and laboratory modeling have been proven useful to unravel some of the complexity of subduction zone processes.

This workshop aims at expertise exchange from different fields to improve the understanding of convergent margins as multi-faceted geological systems. The workshop will include plenary science sessions as well as poster sessions. The plenaries will be held in about seven main sessions, each two to four hours in length, over the course of the three days:

  • Geophysical imaging of complex systems at different scales
  • Time-Lapse Geophysics
  • Natural resources
  • Tectonics and geology of convergent margins (e.g. forearc basin evolution, foreland domain)
  • Geodynamic modelling
  • Cycling of the Earth system and fluid flow at convergent margins
  • Natural hazards

Invited Speakers

Evan Solomon is an associate professor in the School of Oceanography at the University of Washington. He is a marine geochemist/geologist whose research combines the development of seafloor/subseafloor instrumentation, fieldwork, laboratory analysis, and numerical modeling to document and understand a wide range of marine geologic processes. His research is interdisciplinary, combining the fields of geology, geochemistry, geophysics, and microbiology. His current research focuses on 1) biogeochemical cycling between the ocean and crust; 2) fluid flow at subduction zones; 3) methane hydrate systems; 4) sediment diagenesis; and 5) metabolic pathways and rates in the deep biosphere.
