The fall AGU meeting is next week. From their website: "The Fall Meeting is expected to draw a crowd of over 11,000 geophysicists from around the world" — that is, it’s going to be a madhouse, but kind of in a good way.

I’m presenting in this session on Monday afternoon, as is my graduate student. Poster sessions like this are always enjoyable, particularly since there’ll be a number of people I know presenting there, and several of them are also working on the Ontario lithosphere.


I’m also rather pleased with the figure above, which went into a poster I’m bringing. Essentially, it looks like a number of the structures in the Ontario model are correlated with subduction features detected in other studies, as well as with the linear feature previously attributed to the Great Meteor hotspot track; the question marks indicate newly detected features whose significance we’re going to have to figure out.
