CIDER 2017 pre-AGU Workshop

The CIDER-II Synthesis Center proposal to the NSF/FESD program has been funded for 5 years starting in summer 2012. We are continuing the summer programs, which are now held every year, alternating "deep" and "shallow" earth themes. We are continuing other activities, among them support for multi-disciplinary working groups on targeted topics, more sustained support for student research groups formed during the summer programs, a CIDER wiki and archival of materials assembled during the summer programs, as well as an annual one day workshop held in close to the AGU venue either right before or right after the Fall AGU meeting.

This one day workshop will serve as a kick-off for the CIDER 2018 Summer Program, on the topic of "Relating geochemical and geophysical heterogeneity in the Earth" and a retrospective on past programs, in particular, the most recent 2017 summer Program

The workshop will feature 30 mn talks by 2 keynote speakers (one on themes related to the 2017 CIDER summer program and one on themes related to the 2018 CIDER summer program) as well as presentations by research groups from the 2017 and prior programs.

Keynote Speakers:

  • Kerry Key (UC San Diego): "Electromagnetic mapping of fluids and tectonics at subduction zones"
  • Christy Till (Arizona State University): "Toward assessing the causes of volcancic diversity in the Cascades arc"
  • Paul Asimow (Caltech): "Musings on geophysical, mineralogical, and geochemical radial Earth models"

The workshop is open to all - we encourage attendance by both former CIDER junior and senior participants, and those that haven't experienced CIDER yet but would like to find out more about it.

Register here. Please note that CIDER may provide support for one hotel night, but no travel support. Details will be on the registration page.

Workshop Organizers: Barbara Romanowicz, Bruce Buffet and the CIDER ExCom.
