Dear colleagues,

We would invite you to submit your abstract to the AGU session T005 “A
Multidisciplinary Understanding of The Formation and Evolution of the
Continental Lithosphere in Collisional Orogens”. We aim to bring
together different models, methods (geology, geophysics, tectonics, and
geodynamics), evidence and ideas to highlight recent advances in
understanding continental accretion and lithospheric evolution from a
diversity of collisional environments in the world. Please see below for
details.

Invited Abstracts:

·Vera Schulte-Pelkum,

Submission deadline: 31 July at 23:59 EDT, 2019

Please submit your abstracts to
https://agu.confex.com/agu/fm19/prelim.cgi/Session/83516

We look forward to seeing you in December!

Sincerely,

Cong Li, Haiying Gao and Michael Williams

T005

A multidisciplinary understanding of the formation and evolution of the
continental lithosphere in collisional orogens

Session ID#: 83516

Session Description:

Continent-continent convergence is one of the most fundamental tectonic
processes that has led to the growth and modification of the crust and
mantle lithosphere on Earth. Continental collision creates the world’s
major mountain ranges, such as the Appalachians, Alps, Himalayas, and
Urals. The goal of this session is to advance our understanding of
continental accretion and lithospheric evolution through geologic time
by bringing together geological and geophysical studies from a diversity
of collisional environments. We invite contributions focusing on but not
limited to the seismic characteristics of the crust and upper mantle,
the identification and evolution of exotic terranes, the linkage of
magmatism with continental collision, and deep mantle dynamics. We
particularly encourage the contributions with integrative datasets, new
methods, new models, and new ideas from multidisciplinary studies.

Primary Section: Tectonophysics (Cross-listed with study of the earth's
