Dear colleagues,

we would like to draw your attention to the session
Dynamics and Structures of the Tethyan realm: Collisions and back-arcs from the Mediterranean to the Himalayas (TS7.7/GD8.8/GMPV9.5/SM 2.14)
at EGU 2018 (Vienna, Austria, 8-13 April 2018) and invite you consider submitting an abstract to this session. The abstract submission deadline is Wednesday January 10, 2018 @ 13:00 CET.
Session description:
The Alpine-Zagros-Himalayan orogenic belt is one of the largest and most prominent suture zones on Earth. It ranges from the Mediterranean in the west to Indonesia in the east, and its long-lasting geological record of complex interactions among major and smaller plates and 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 entire mountain belt
We welcome contributions presenting new insights and observations derived from different perspectives like geology (stratigraphy, petrology, geochronology, geochemistry, tectonics and geomorphology), geophysics (seismicity, seismic imaging, seismic anisotropy, gravity), geodesy (GPS, InSAR), modelling (numerical and analogue), risk assessment (earthquake, volcanism), as well as from multi-disciplinary studies.

Confirmed solicited presentations:
- Anne Replumaz - Univ. Grenoble: Indian and Asian continental subductions during Cenozoic collision: how it works
- Douwe van Hinsbergen - Univ. Utrecht: Plume-induced subduction initiation in the Cretaceous Neotethys Ocean
- Paolo Ballato - Univ. Roma 3: Evolution of the NW Iranian Plateau: from lateral expansion to fluvial incision and plateau excavation
