  Information - TS5.4 Active and Recent Tectonics and Geodynamics of the Central - Eastern Mediterranean (co-listed in GD & SM)

Event Information
The Central - Eastern Mediterranean region is locally characterised by
high seismicity, rapid (micro)plate motions and young stretched crust.
This is the expression of a complex spatio-temporal interplay of
convergence, extension, slab retreat, variable plate motion and plate-
Key issues include: subducting plate instabilities, contribution of mantle
processes, increase / migration / switching of plate rates, roles of slab
melting and upper / lower crustal failure. These intriguing phenomena are
becoming better understood through a range of modern geoscience studies
that can constrain crust & mantle architectures, temperatures, rates. We
look forward to contributions that address these issues, in particular
those combining disciplines such as seismology (e.g. on-/off-shore
seismic recordings, tomography) seismotectonics / seismogenesis, brittle
tectonics, crustal flow & failure study, geodesy, volcanology and
