Information - GD12/G14 Kinematics and Geodynamics of the Mediterranean (co-organized by G) (co-listed in NH & TS)
The plate boundary zone accommodating the convergence between Nubia/Arabia and Eurasia is a complex deformation zone including a wide range of active geodynamics 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.
