Topics: AGU Meetings
Dear colleagues,

We would like to draw your attention to the AGU session “*/T011. Eastern
North American Margin: Multidisciplinary Studies/*”. We aim to bring
together contributions of different models, methods, evidence, and ideas
from multiple disciplines (e.g., geology, geophysics, tectonics, and
geodynamics) to highlight recent advances in understanding the evolution
and tectonic history of the Eastern North American Margin. Please see
below for details.

Submission deadline: *2nd August 23:59 EDT.*

Please submit your abstracts to:

We look forward to seeing you in December!

*T011. Eastern North American Margin: Multidisciplinary Studies***

Session ID#: 24298

*Session Description:*

The Eastern North American Margin (ENAM) records a complex geologic and
tectonic history, encompassing two complete Wilson cycles from
supercontinent assembly to breakup over the past ~1.3 billion years. It
is an ideal, natural laboratory to examine the orogenic histories, the
continental lithospheric behavior and the interaction between crust and
upper mantle beneath passive margins during episodes of collision and
rifting, which are fundamental for our understanding of plate tectonics
in general. This session invites multidisciplinary contributions from
geology, geophysics, tectonics, and geodynamics on the ENAM with new
datasets, new methods, new models, and new ideas, with particular
interests of the integrated results from multiple disciplines on the
study of the 3-D geometry of this passive margin and the tectonic
evolutions. Topics may include but are not limited to understanding of
the evolution and tectonic history of orogenic processes during
collisions and rifting, the crustal and upper mantle structures and
dynamics, the nature and origin of magmatic activities and the links to
tectonic processes and deep mantle dynamics.
