Information - TS7.2 Arc-continent collision orogens (including Stephan Mueller Medal Lecture)
Arc-continent collision has been an important tectonic process throughout geological time and is thought to be the major process by which the continental crust has grown. Arc-continent collision zones are also an important source of the world’s mineral wealth, hosting large deposits of massive sulfides, gold, and platinum-group elements. Understanding the geological processes that have taken place in the crust during arc-continent collision is therefore of importance for our understanding of how collisional orogens evolve, how the continental crust grows, and how its mineral wealth is formed and preserved. Presentations on any aspect of arc-continent collision are welcome.
