S2. Tectonics and Geophysics in western Canada and the Canadian Cordillera
Western Canada, including the Canadian Cordillera, is a region of past and current complex active tectonics. This includes multiple periods of orogenesis, lithospheric-scale fault systems, and past and present magmatism. Spanning from British Columbia to the Beaufort Sea, the complex geology of the region consists of multiple accreted terranes juxtaposed next to the North American craton. Recent advances in geophysical instrumentation (in particular, throughout northwestern Canada) as well as future planned experiments (e.g., EON-ROSE) motivate a wide range of tectonic studies of the Canadian Cordillera. We welcome contributions addressing questions of the structure and dynamics of the Canadian Cordillera, from local to regional scales, and from the surface to the mantle. We also welcome contributions investigating scientific questions that have implications for natural hazards and exploration (e.g., geothermal) throughout western Canada. We encourage multi-disciplinary contributions including (but not limited to) structural (geophysical) imaging, remote sensing, and numerical modelling.
