Dear all,

we would like to draw your attention to the session S23 "Experimental markers and physical modelling of geodynamic processes" to be held during the 36th General Assembly of the European Seismological Commission (Valletta, Malta, 2-7 September 2018,

S23 Experimental markers and physical modelling of geodynamic processes

Experimental data and observations such as GPS measurements of crustal motions, earthquake locations and focal mechanisms, fault activity and local geology, are commonly used to infer space-time distributions of tectonic stress and strain in the Earth’s lithosphere. These distributions lead to identify geodynamic processes acting as sources of the observed deformation patterns. Different methods and procedures are adopted for solving this inverse problem, such as the Finite Element Modelling of the dynamics of the crust-mantle system under assigned tectonic boundary conditions. This Session aims at opening a wide discussion on the most recent developments of this geodynamic theme, stimulating the presentation of contributions concerning the different aspects of the problem, from collection of geophysical and geological experimental data to physical modelling of lithospheric deformation processes. Analyses of data and processes carried out in the Euro-Mediterranean region are primarily expected (given also the context of the Assembly) but contributions focusing on different regions are also strongly welcome.

We kindly invite you to contribute both by oral and poster presentations. Abstract submission is already open at the conference website ( and it will run until 31 March 2018.
Please accept our apologies for multiple posts.

Looking forward to receiving your submissions and seeing you in Malta,
Best Regards
Barbara Orecchio and Anna Maria Marotta
