Information - GM18 Orogenesis - from the basins to the peaks
To fully document how an orogen evolves over time requires an integrated
approach investigating the ancient sediment record in conjunction with
the modern mountain. Thermochronometers, especially those applicable to
shallow crustal levels, have been applied effectively in several
orogenic settings to understand long term exhumation rates. The early
history of the orogen is often absent having been removed through a
combination of tectonic activity and erosion. Applying low temperature
thermochronometers to the detrital sedimentary record allows us to gain
insights into the earliest evolution of the orogen and answer
fundamental questions regarding the constancy of exhumation over
geological timescales. We encourage contributions from those working
within active orogens and foreland basins so that new and innovative
approaches to models of orogenesis can be highlighted.
