  Information - SM10 Active deformation and lithospheric processes

Event Information
The earth's surface records lithospheric deformation over a range of scales in space, depth extent, and time. Therefore, measurements of surface deformation represent snapshots of the interaction of all active processes, such as seismic ruptures, aseismic fault slip, magmatic injection, propagation and growth of fault systems, flexural loading, erosion, or broad-scale continental deformation. Thus to understand how to link observations to models of lithospheric deformation, we will need to integrate measurements from a variety of disciplines. In both observational and modeling studies, consideration of the parameter sensitivity to the 3D spatial distribution and temporal variability of deformation is critical. The main goal of this session is to bring together field-based, laboratory, and modeling research in seismology, geodesy, structural geology, tectonic geomorphology, geodynamics, and other relevant areas of the earth sciences to better constrain conceptual and quantitative models of lithospheric deformation. We encourage contributions integrating results from these disciplines in kinematic or dynamic models and observations.
