Subduction Factory Studies in the Izu-Bonin-Mariana Arc System: Results and Future Plans. Meeting Objectives. to summarize and discuss what we have discovered about how the IBM Subduction Factory operates to advance beyond IBM on the general science goals of the Subduction Factory initiative
to summarize and discuss what we have discovered about how the IBM Subduction Factory operates
to advance beyond IBM on the general science goals of the Subduction Factory initiative
to explore possible integration of MARGINS-SubFac-IBM science goals with the objectives of the other research programs such as IODP, NOAA “Ocean Exploration”, and studies related to Law of the Sea negotiations.
To prepare for the future
Not articulated as such in the original MARGINS science plan, but that are clearly related to MARGINS efforts; two of which are articulated in the IODP Initial Science Plan (ISP):
4) Recycling of Oceanic Lithosphere Into the Deeper Mantle
5) Formation of Continental Crust
In addition, we will use the workshop to identify outstanding issues and progress about how subduction zones form.
Science Education and Outreach
(these will be discussed more extensively at Thursday evening workshop)
Speakers: Please leave time for discussion!
Audience: Please discuss issues of significance
Both: Please focus on what needs to be known
“There are known knowns. These are things we know that we know. There are known unknowns. That is to say, there are things that we know we don't know. But there are also unknown unknowns. There are things we don't know we don't know.”
Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld, Feb. 12, 2002 news briefing.
What are the known knowns? What are the known unknowns? And what are the unknown unknowns?

1996 Hayama, Japan
10 US, and 75 Japanese scientists, plus representatives from Australia, Britain, and Germany
2002 Honolulu HI
About 100 scientists attended, ~ 60% from the United States, most of the rest from Japan, and some from Europe.
I hope results from IODP/ICDP drilling, ALVIN/SHINKAI/ROV diving, new geophysical and geochemical studies, and GIS/database
We’d like to post powerpoint presentations on the web. Presenters:please let Cary Kandel know if this is NOT OK.
Do we want to publish a volume of results? If so, we need a couple of editors!
