Dear Colleagues,

Please consider submitting an abstract to session T026 “One Rift, Two Rift, Magma-Rich Rift, Magma-Poor Rift: Deformation, magmatism, volatile fluxes, and their consequences in the East African Rift System” co-organized with Tectonophysics, Earth and Planetary Surface Processes, Geodesy, Seismology, and Volcanology, Geochemistry and Petrology.

Session ID#: 12985
Session Description:
The East African Rift System (EARS) represents one of the largest active continental rift systems in the world, and it exhibits remarkable variability along its length in the amount and style of extension, seismicity, volcanism, volatile fluxes and surface morphology.  As such, the EARS presents a natural laboratory for investigating the controls on continental extension from initiation to final breakup and consequences for hazards, microclimate and ecosystems.  We invite abstracts from diverse fields (e.g., geochemistry, geodynamics, geology, geophysics) focused on elucidating the evolution of tectonic deformation, magmatism, and volatile fluxes during continental rifting in the EARS and comparative studies of other extensional systems elsewhere around the globe. 

Conveners:
Natalie Accardo, Donna Shillington, Tobias Fischer, Juliet Biggs

Looking forward to seeing you in San Francisco!
Natalie
