  Information - TS7.6/MPRG1 Asian geodynamics, plateau uplift and paleoclimatic implications; constraints from tectonics, sedimentology and paleomagnetism (co-organized by MPRG) (co-listed in SSP)

Event Information
The goal of this session is to gather contributions from a wide range of specialties focusing on Asian geodynamics, plateau uplift and their paleoclimatic implications. What was the geodynamic evolution of Asia before and after collision with India? How and when deformation and uplift of the Tibetan Plateau occurred, and can they be correlated to regional and/or global climate change? To answer these fundamental questions, we invite tectonic contributions that assess deformation and uplift with all the tools at hand today (e.g. structural geology, thermochronology, geomorphology, paleoseismology); sedimentologic contributions concerned with extracting tectonic and paleoclimatic events from the continental and oceanic sedimentary record (e.g. basin analysis, provenance and multi-paleoenvironmental proxies) and contributions of paleomagnetism applied to the Tibetan-Himalayan orogenic system (e.g. geodynamic reconstructions, tectonic rotation and magnetostratigraphy). The multidisciplinary session should provide an opportunity to link geodynamic and tectonic events (Tibetan uplift, onset of subsidence, tectonic rotations, thrusting and strike-slip faulting ) to the climatic response (monsoon intensification, aridification, warm-cool oscillations, westerly circulation ).
