Richard Palin, Colorado School of Mines, Geology and Geological Engineering Department Berthoud 241, 4-5PM Constraining Continental Lithospheric Dynamics using Xenoliths: Case Studies from the Colorado Plateau, USA Abstract: The causes of Cenozoic uplift of the Colorado Plateau, southwestern USA, are strongly debated, though most hypotheses acknowledge the importance of northwest-directed subduction of the Farallon oceanic plate beneath North America since c. 100 Ma. Considerable insight into the effects of subducted slab–continental lithosphere interaction has been gained by multidisciplinary studies of crustal…

Matt Thomas, United States Geological Survey Berthoud 241, 4-5PM The Arctic Coastal Erosion Problem Abstract: The Arctic coastline spans ~45,000 km (28,000 miles) across six nations, including the United States. Declining sea ice in the Arctic Ocean has increased the length of the open-water season, exposing the coasts to more frequent and intense forms of wave energy and storm surge. As a result, rates of coastal erosion in the Alaskan Arctic have doubled since the middle of the 20th century, and…

Leonard Sklar, Concordia University Berthoud 241, 4-5PM The Problem of Predicting the Size Distribution of Sediment Supplied by Hillslopes to Rivers Abstract: In this talk, I aim to convince you that: The size of distribution of sediment supplied by hillslopes to rivers is a key control on river morphodynamics, from channel response to human land use, to landscape response to changes in tectonic and climatic forcing. Predicting hillslope sediment size distributions is a major unsolved problem in geomorphology, requiring advances…

Yasushi Watanabe, SEG International Lecturer, Akita University Berthoud 241, 4-5PM Critical Metals for the Future Abstract: Modern society demands various kinds of metals in addition to traditional base and precious metals for the use of high-technology and/or green technology. Mining sectors are required to supply enough amounts of metals on time, but it is not always possible because of various reasons such as scarcity of the reserves, environmental issues, technological difficulties, profitability, time for the mine development, nationalism, etc. This presentation…
