Dear collogues,



We would like to invite contributions to our AGU session: T001. A Multidisciplinary View of Structure, Dynamics and Evolution of the San Andreas Plate Boundary System and other transform faults.



Session Description:

The San Andreas Plate Boundary System (SAPBS) exhibits a wide range of structural and dynamic behavior along its length, including patterns of seismicity, plate boundary width (diffuseness), deformation partitioning, host lithologies, and tectonic history. This variability reflects a wide range of processes, including tectonic inheritance from prior phases of deformation, coupling to short-term climatic and hydrological processes, and processes in adjacent tectonic provinces such as the great valley, Sierran Microplate, and Basin & Range. The complex and variable nature of the SAPBS combined with decades of prior investigation and modern dense instrumentation offers a unique opportunity to explore complex feedbacks between diverse geologic processes in active plate boundaries over a wide range of spatial and temporal scales. In this session, we invite research contributions across the Earth sciences investigating the dynamics of the SAPBS and neighboring tectonic provinces through observational, experimental, and numerical techniques. Studies focusing on other transform fault systems are also welcomed to facilitate direct comparisons with the SAPBS. We particularly solicit studies integrating observations and techniques across disciplines, processes, and scales, as well as those with a synoptic view on transform fault systems.



Invited speakers are Ping Tong from Nanyang Technical University, Singapore and Alba Rodriguez from University of California, Davis.
