Dear colleagues,

we would like to draw your attention to the session

Dynamics and Structures of the Mediterranean Collisions and Back-arcs

at EGU 2017 (Vienna, Austria, 23–28 April 2017) and hope that you will
consider submitting an abstract. The abstract submission deadline is *Wednesday
January 11 2017.*

*Session description: *

The Mediterranean region, given its peculiar landlocked setting in the
Africa/Arabia and Eurasia convergence zone, its invaluable and long-lasting
geological record of complex interactions among major and smaller plates,
the presence of subduction zones at different evolutionary stages, has
progressively grown as a comprehensive test site to investigate fundamental
plate tectonics and geodynamic processes with multi-disciplinary studies.
Advances in a variety of geophysical and geological fields provide a rich
and growing set of constraints on the crust-lithosphere and mantle
structure, tectonics and geodynamic evolution of the whole Mediterranean.
We welcome contributions presenting new insights and observations from
different perspectives like tectonics, stratigraphy, paleomagnetism,
geomorphology, geochemistry, seismology, gravity, geodesy and modelling
(numerical and analogue).

*Solicited presentations: *
