Dear Potential Participants,

Please consider submitting an abstract to the session S2.7 “Multidisciplinary approaches to caldera deformation studies” for the COV11 Conference in Heraklion, Crete, Greece
23-27 May 2020.

Session description:

Calderas are complex volcanotectonic systems with possible long dormant periods. Active and recent calderas can pose a very high threat to large populations and infrastructure. Caldera structures span up to tens of kilometres and their origin is linked to a combination of processes, most relevantly magma dynamics, gravity, and regional tectonics. Frequently, their deformation history shows inversion of movements from subsidence to uplift and vice versa. The understanding of caldera evolution benefits from studies at active systems as well as at ancient eroded structures. Studies from different disciplines are welcome to emphasize how different approaches, possibly in synergy, improve knowledge. Among possible approaches, but not limited to, there are field and offshore geological-structural and morpho-stratigraphic studies, geophysical exploration methods, geodesy, interferometry, seismology, numerical modeling, and analogue experiments that lead to an interdisciplinary approach for better understanding caldera dynamics.
