The GSA Cordilleran Section Meeting will be held in Honolulu, HI, 23-25 May 2017. There will be a number of sessions of relevance to planetary scientists.

We welcome submissions to the following sessions:

T18. Deposition and Diagenesis of Volcaniclastic Sediments on Earth
and Mars
Conveners: Juergen Schieber, Ken Edgett, David Bish
Our goal is to bring together researchers investigating deposition and post-depositional alteration of terrestrial volcaniclastic sediments with those working on Martian sediments and sedimentary rock. To help with the science return from Mars rover data, of particular interest are mafic to intermediate sediments, sedimentary rocks, and their diagenesis.

T19. Mars On Earth: Understanding Mars Through Earth Surface Processes
Conveners: Robert A. Craddock, Jacob E. Bleacher, Christopher Hamilton
Analog sites on Earth are useful for understanding geologic features on Mars, testing technology for future manned and unmanned missions, and for evaluating potential past and present conditions for astrobiology. Results from ongoing analog field studies, particularly
those in Hawaii, will be presented.

Abstract deadline is 14 February 2017.

In addition to the conference sessions, there is a slate of workshops and short courses, as well as fieldtrips on Oahu, Maui, Kauai, and Hawaii.
