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.
Invited Speakers:
• Maureen Long, Yale University (http://people.earth.yale.edu/profile/maureen-long/about)
• Robert Moucha, Syracuse University (http://asfaculty.syr.edu/pages/ear/Moucha-Robert.html)

Submission deadline: 2nd August 23:59 EDT.
Please submit your abstracts to: https://fallmeeting.agu.org/2017/abstract-submissions/

We look forward to seeing you in December!

Sincerely,
Xiaotao Yang, Cong Li, Michael Williams and Vadim Levin

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.
