Information - TS9 From rifting to drifting: observations, models and ideas on passive margin formation
Passive continental margins continue to be a focus of geological research. Special attention is given to the geological processes that govern continental breakup, the rift to drift transition. These magmatic and tectonic processes may differ significantly between volcanic and non-volcanic passive margins. It has been become clear now that understanding these differences and quantifying the key geological processes requires integrated studies that include geophysical observations, geological and petrological field constraints as well as numerical and analog models. This session aims at bringing together geoscientists from different disciplines in order to exchange new observations, models and ideas on continental rifting and breakup.
