  Information - GD07 Dynamics and Thermal Structure of Subduction Zones

Event Information
This session is focussed on geological and geophysical aspects
characterizing active subduction zones. Papers dealing with the structure
and active tectonics of the crust, lithosphere and wedge are warmly
welcomed. We also encourage contributions that focus on dynamical aspects
of subduction zones, including physical and numerical modelling, and
subduction zone rheology. The Session acknowledges papers on both
conceptual and applied subduction studies.

Preliminary List of Solicited Speakers
Prof. Rinus Wortel on 'Understanding the Cyprus subduction zone'
Prof. Cesar Ranero on 'Understanding the Andean subduction zone'
Prof. Serge Lalemant on 'Global characterization of subduction zones'
Prof. Harro Schmeling on 'New advances in numerical modelling of subduction processes'
