Workshop on volatile recycling, tectonics and associated hazards in the Lesser Antilles - Expression of Interest

Monday, 23 September 2019 to Friday, 27 September 2019


University Inn and Conference Centre, UWI Campus, St Augustine
Trinidad and Tobago

This is the final workshop of our Volatiles recycling in the Lesser Antilles project. At the workshop we aim to bring together scientists who have worked on the Antilles, scientists who have worked on subduction processes at other zones around the globe, and stake holders interested in tectonic hazards in the Lesser Antilles.

The workshop will include sessions on:
~ Incoming Atlantic plate: structure and volatile storage
~ Structure and dynamics of the subduction mantle wedge
~ Arc structure, magmatic evolution and mineralisation
~ Tectonic evolution of the Lesser Antilles
~ Seismic and volcanic hazards
~ Comparisons with other arc systems
As well as a one-day field trip.

There will be a day of outreach events aimed at undergraduate geoscience students and open to any others with an interest in tectonic hazards at the Lesser Antilles arc.

For non-T&T and VoiLA participants there will be a registration fee of no more than £200.00.

Organising Committee:
George Cooper (University of Bristol, UK)
Stacey Edwards, Michal Camejo, Joan Latchman (Seismic Research Centre, University of West Indies, Trinidad)
Saskia Goes (Imperial College London, UK)
and the VoiLA team.
