  Information - TS5.1 Intraplate deformations and plate boundary conditions: observations and models

Event Information
Stresses causing intraplate deformation have their origin from processes at plate boundaries, at the base of the lithosphere, or from intra-lithospheric loads. Basin inversion is one important type of intraplate deformation that has received much attention, and for which different lithospheric mechanisms and modes of deformation have been proposed: compressional buckling, thick- and thin-skinned shortening, and recently also for the mid Paleocene inversions in Europe - stress relaxation. For this session we encourage oral and poster contributions dealing with observations and/or models of the relation between stress generating processes and intraplate deformations. Specific case stories focusing on observations of deformation style and mathematical models as well as comparative studies are welcome. Geological and geophysical data constraining the (absolute and relative) timing of basin inversion processes are of particular interest.
