Dear Colleagues,


We would like to invite you to submit an abstract to the *TS7.10 session: A
trans-disciplinary view of the Tethyan realm through space and time:
subduction and collisional zones from the Mediterranean to southeast Asia*.
This session is co-organized with GD6/GMPV11/SM1 open to all with an
interest in the Tethyan orogenic belt from the Mediterranean to Papua New
Guinea. We encourage contributions using trans-disciplinary and innovative
methods including geology (tectonics, stratigraphy, petrology,
geochronology, geochemistry, and geomorphology), geophysics (seismicity,
seismic imaging, seismic anisotropy, gravity), geodesy (GPS, InSAR),
modelling (numerical and analogue), natural hazards (earthquakes,
volcanism).



Please note that EGU will be online this April and has reduced or free
registration fees making it more accessible for anyone who can join online.
The *abstract deadline is 13 January 2021 at 13:00 CET*.


We look forward to your contributions and seeing you virtually in 2021,



Best wishes,

Derya, Marc, Ágnes, Andy and Claudia

Session description

The Tethyan orogenic belt is one of the largest and most prominent
collisional zones on Earth. The belt ranges from the Mediterranean in the
west to Papua New Guinea in the east. It results from the subduction and
closure of multiple basins of the Tethys Ocean and the subsequent collision
of the African, Arabian and Indian continental plates with Eurasia. Its
long-lasting geological record of the opening and closure of oceanic
basins, the accretion of arcs and microcontinents, the complex interactions
of 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 multiple disciplines. Advances in a variety of fields
provide a rich and growing set of constraints on the crust-lithosphere and
mantle structure and their physical and chemical characteristics, as well
as the tectonics and geodynamic evolution of the Tethyan orogenic belt.

We welcome contributions presenting new insights and observations derived
from different perspectives, including geology (tectonics, stratigraphy,
petrology, geochronology, geochemistry, and geomorphology), geophysics
(seismicity, seismic imaging, seismic anisotropy, gravity), geodesy (GPS,
InSAR), modelling (numerical and analogue), natural hazards (earthquakes,
volcanism). In particular, we encourage the submission of
trans-disciplinary studies, which integrate observations across a range of
spatial and temporal scales to further our understanding of plate tectonics
as a planetary process of fundamental importance.
