I'm pretty sure E/V just stands for Earthquakes and Volcanoes, so they'd be the same

tectonics encompasses more plate-related topics than E/V did in 2008

Wait how dfferent is it? Cause I moved the E/V wikipage to Dynamic Planet/Tectonics because I thought it was just being renamed à la Rivers and Lakes > Freshwater.

Earthquakes, Volcanoes, Landslides, and Tsunamis together only encompass one topic of the 14 topics for tectonics.
I feel it will not be very specific to earthquakes and volcanoes

Thanks so much for doing this! I am wondering if at SOSI they give you the proposed tentative schedule of events for the National Tournament that is usually on the back page of the official rules? Our state follows that schedule for Regional and State competition and I am wondering what the conflicting events are for this upcoming season.
Thanks!

No. They do not. We all have to wait for September.
