Dear Colleagues,

We welcome submissions to the GSA Topical session:
T46. Rifts, Rifted Margins, Backarcs, and Spreading Ridges: Understanding Extensional Processes across Tectonic Settings and Time Scales.

Brief description: This cross-disciplinary session on extensional systems welcomes presentations on structure, geochemistry, geophysics, geomorphology, hazards, and modeling that aim to understand linkages and feedbacks between processes and hazards in the solid Earth, hydrosphere and atmosphere.

Abstract deadline: 20 July 2021, 11:59 PM, Pacific Time
To submit abstracts:
GSA Connects 2021 in Portland will also offer online options. More information is available at:
