Dear colleagues,

(apologies for multiple posting)
we would like to draw your attention to the session

Dynamics and Structures of the Mediterranean Collisions and Back-arcs (TS7.1/GD6.7/SM6.4)

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).

To join you can submit your abstracts here :

The deadline for EGU's travel support programme is this Thursday, 1 December. The support programme focuses mainly on Early Career Scientists, but it also has a limited budget for established scientists from low, lower middle, and upper middle income countries. The eligibility criteria are on

Looking forward hearing from you, with our best regards
