Subject: [CIG-ALL] International Geophysics and Tectonics Seminar Series - starting Wed June 3rd



Dear all,

I hope everyone is staying safe and healthy these days.

As a replacement for the many department seminars which were cancelled as a result of COVID-19 and lockdowns, I am starting an International Virtual Seminar Series in Geophysics and Tectonics.

This G&T Seminar will be held on Zoom at 11:00am Eastern time on Wednesdays. The seminars will be 50 minutes plus 10 minutes for questions.

If you are interested in joining in the seminar series, please sign up for the mailing list on the seminar website: https://sites.google.com/g.uky.edu/gtseminar/ (or by emailing me directly).

Each week I will send out the Zoom link and details of our upcoming seminar speaker to the mailing list.

Our first seminar will be next week on Wednesday June 3rd. Our speaker is Fabio Crameri from CEED at Oslo University. His talk will be:

A trans-disciplinary and community-driven database to unravel subduction zone initiation


I will provide an overview over subduction zone initiation (SZI) and its study involving geologic evidence, plate reconstructions, seismic tomography, and geodynamic modelling. Moreover, I will introduce our brand-new trans-disciplinary, community-driven SZI database and timely online platform, how to use it, and what we already learned from it.


Here is the Zoom link and password for our first seminar:

Please forward these details to any colleagues you think might be interested in joining the seminar series and direct them to sign up for the mailing list by visiting our website: https://sites.google.com/g.uky.edu/gtseminar/ (or emailing me directly). More details about the seminar, including upcoming and past speakers can be found on the website.

If you have any questions, or would like to give a talk in the future, please email me (k.ofarrell@uky.edu).

Take care and stay safe,
Keely
