Workshop: Ocean Mantle Dynamics: from Spreading Center to Subduction Zone

The above meeting will be held on 4-6 October 2011 at AORI, Tokyo, Japan, with an optional field trip on 2 October. Registration is now open and attendees are encouraged to post their interest as soon as possible. All details are available from the Japanese website.

In this meeting, there will be a focus on three objectives of crustal and mantle imaging, with an emphasis on mantle dynamics:

1) the structure of oceanic lithosphere (including the crust and sub-crust) and asthenosphere
2) melt migration beneath the spreading axis to form oceanic crust
3) the role of water, especially for subduction and back-arc spreading dynamics.
