Conference Objectives

The Japan-Kamchatka-Aleutian portion of the Pacific Rim of Fire is amongst the most geologically active regions of our planet Earth. This region is home to the largest earthquakes, tsunamis, and volcanic eruptions in recorded history. Yet, this is a place where human communities have lived for thousands of years, demonstrating a remarkable resilience to geohazards and adverse climate conditions. This continuing series of meetings seeks to build a vital international geoscience community in the North Pacific to understand nature of the subduction processes and to better mitigate the associated hazards posed to our society. The intent of the meeting is to nurture productive international collaboration in research and monitoring. We welcome scholars from all countries to come and present results of recent and ongoing research projects and hazard monitoring efforts.

Optional field excursions to Katmai National Park, Augustine Volcano, the Prince William Sound, and the Chena Hot Springs Resort will be held before, during, and after the meeting if there is sufficient interest.
