Dear colleagues,

We would like to invite you to submit abstracts to our 2019 AGU Fall
Meeting session *"T057 - The manifestation of subduction: geochemical,
petrological, and geophysical constraints on lithospheric structure,
composition, and evolution
https://agu.confex.com/agu/fm19/prelim.cgi/Session/83741". *We welcome
contributions that focus on investigating subduction zone systems from a
multi-disciplinary perspective. See below for a more detailed description
of the session.

We look forward to seeing you at the Fall Meeting.

*Session Description:*
*T057 - The manifestation of subduction: geochemical, petrological, and
geophysical constraints on lithospheric structure, composition, and
evolution*
Subduction zones display a rich diversity in magmatic, tectonic and
metamorphic processes at a wide range of spatial and temporal scales. As
major crust-producing, -refining and -recycling factories, their evolution
greatly influences the chemical composition and physical characteristics of
the overriding lithosphere. However, many of these aspects, including
subduction initiation and evolution, timing and evolution of magmatism, and
contribution to the production of continental crust, are not well
understood.

Understanding these aspects requires collaborative research, integrated
perspectives, and complementary methodologies. We invite research
contributions related to: petrological, structural, geochemical, and
geochronological studies on rocks from exhumed and/or active settings,
petrological experiments and modeling, and geophysical/geodynamic studies
of subduction margins.
