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, https://www.colorado.edu/geologicalsciences/vera-schulte-pelkum, University of Colorado Boulder
· Claire Currie,

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.
