The meeting will explore the connections between Earth’s surface and interior. Multiple lines of evidence suggest that materials originally at or near Earth’s surface have been recycled into the deep Earth and then may reappear at the surface. The meeting will explore recycling through geophysical, geochemical, and geological observables, as well as modeling and mass balance considerations, focusing on processes and outcomes of recycling, and how these may have varied through Earth history. Perspectives on Earth will be gained via comparison to other terrestrial planets. The conference will consist of multidisciplinary sessions that examine Earth recycling through space and time. Cutting-edge research findings will be presented on these topics from a broad suite of disciplines, defining the most pressing questions about planetary interiors and their connections to the surface and how recycling processes have changed over Earth history.
Applications for this meeting must be submitted by May 5, 2019. Please apply early, as some meetings become oversubscribed (full) before this deadline. If the meeting is oversubscribed, it will be stated here. See the conference website for more information.
