Abstract: The GeoPRISMS Steering and Oversight Committee are pleased to announce a workshop to develop a detailed implementation plan for the NSF GeoPRISMS New Zealand Primary Site. New Zealand was chosen as a primary site because all of the GeoPRISMS Subduction Cycles and Deformation (SCD) themes can be addressed particularly well at the Hikurangi/Kermadec and Fiordland subduction zones. The SCD themes include arc magmatism and volatile cycling, subduction initiation, subduction margin deformation processes (both seismic-cycle and longer timescales), and links between surface processes and subduction margin tectonics. In addition to serving as an excellent natural laboratory for modern subduction processes, New Zealand also offers opportunities to investigate an exhumed Paleozoic to Mesozoic subduction system. The workshop is intended to clarify the main research objectives for the New Zealand primary site, and to develop an implementation plan and timeline to achieve these objectives considering available resources and infrastructure.
