Online interactive field trip to the Mendocino Triple Junction (MTJ)

The MTJ Synthesis Workshop was the first in a series of workshops supported by the EarthScope National Office between 2016 and 2018. This workshop included a field excursion to key sites in the region. Check it out at: http://www.earthscope.org/research/synthesis_workshops/mtjo


Humans of EarthScope

Another product of the synthesis workshops is inspired by the Humans of New York (HoNY) project. Humans of EarthScope explores the who, what, where, when, why, and how of being an earth scientist. This new series profiles researchers who use EarthScope data, putting faces to the personal stories that inspired them. We are seeking to inspire educators and their students with stories that call us to the profession. If you would like to participate, please contact the office (uaf-earthscope@alaska.edu).
