The Planning for the Modeling Collaboratory for Subduction (MCS) Research Collaboration Network (RCN) is a community effort that was funded by the National Science Foundation in September of 2018 as part of the SZ4D process. For an overview of current activities, see here.

We organize workshops and webinars, and support collaboration among scientists studying subduction across all spatio-temporal scales. Our goal is to pave the way for a Modeling Collaboratory for Subduction, a new center for data-integrative modeling that will include physics-based, decadal-scale hazard assessment for earthquakes and volcanoes.

The MCS RCN is run by a steering committee and locally organized by Thorsten Becker at the University of Texas Institute for Geophysics in Austin. For questions or comments, message contact@sz4dmcs.org.
