Information - GD11 Kinematics and Geodynamics of the Central and Western Mediterranean (co-listed in TS, G & NH)
The plate boundary zone accommodating the convergence between
Africa and Eurasia is a complex deformation zone including a
wide range of active geodynamic processes, inherited from a
multi-staged geological history. In the past years, space
geodetic techniques have dramatically improve our ability to
monitor crustal motion at various scales and have revealed the
complexity of the present-day kinematics in the Mediterranean
and its surroundings. Despite this progress, the deformation
still needs to be quantitatively assessed in many parts of the
plate boundary and the link to dynamics still remains to be
understood. This session solicits contributions on new
observations of crustal motion in the Europe-Mediterranean area.
We invite papers concerned with the tectonic interpretation of
observed velocity and strain rate fields in relationship with
the evolution of the Mediterranean. We welcome contributions
that focus on the link (at any scale) between surface kinematics
and the dynamic processes driving the deformation in the crust,
lithosphere and mantle.
