Sedimentary basins within rifts are characterised by complex, dynamic environments, with the interplay between tectonic deformation, surface processes and climate controlling basin architecture and sedimentary infill. Ongoing research elucidates the links between these factors, permitting improved understanding of basin evolution and subsequent facies distribution, with implications for resource exploration.
This session aims to bring together researchers from various backgrounds in order to foster collaboration. We invite contributions that investigate the relationships between, and interaction of, rift tectonics, surface processes and climate, at a variety of spatial and temporal scales. We welcome approaches including remote-sensing analysis, geophysical methods and sedimentological, structural or geomorphological fieldwork. Analogue and numerical modelling methods are also encouraged.
Special issue announcement:
This vEGU21 session has inspired the initiation of a special issue on "Links between tectonics, fault evolution and surface processes in extensional systems", in the gold open access journal Frontiers in Earth Science. The special issue is edited by Frank Zwaan, Alex Hughes, Laura Gregory, Joanna Faure Walker and Lisa McNeill. The call for submission is open and will close on the 31st of October 2021. If you are interested in contributing a paper, please contact us and/or register on the special issue website: https://www.frontiersin.org/research-topics/20047

How to access TS5.3
Session TS5.3 runs as a vPICO session. Everybody, conveners/chair/speakers as well as attendees, join the live session page on EGU21. While attendees stay on this live session page and see the live presentations via stream, you as convener/chair/speaker are required to enter the BigBlueButton (BBB) live video chat to give your presentation.
Please keep the live session page open on this browser tab and join the BBB video chat in parallel on another browser tab through the button below. Your personal breakout text chat following the live presentations are linked from the live session page tab, not from the additional BBB video chat tab.Enter BBB video chat
