  Information - SSP6/TS23 Geodynamics, sedimentary evolution, and landscape development of the Pannonian - Carpathians domain (co-organized by TS)

Event Information
The Pannonian-Carpathians system forms a key element in the geological puzzle of Europe. The relevance of this system relies on the complex, intriguing lithosphere dynamics and the high potential of information stored in its stratigraphic archives. Between tectonic and sedimentary processes acting in this key natural laboratory, the focus has to be put on the need of bringing together expertise in basin dynamics, integrated stratigraphy and landform evolution.
The session aims to identify, understand and quantify neotectonic processes controlling landscape formation and natural hazards in the light of the late-stages of the orogenic evolution along with a better understanding of the evolution of paleoenvironments under changing climatic conditions. Pursuing this integrated approach, a key objective of the session is to provide direct and reliable links between lithosphere dynamics, neotectonics, sedimentary evolution, paleobiogeography and surface and climatic processes through quantitative models with a multiple array of different datasets, under varying timescales. The Pannonian-Carpathians system represents a natural example for the study of unusually developed foredeep basins associated with large-scale strain and seismicity concentration and high-velocity mantle bodies. It displays pronounced lateral variation in lithospheric structure and sedimentary basin configuration. Between processes taking place at depth and at the surface in this key natural laboratory, the focus has to be put on the interplay between basin evolution, active tectonics, topography evolution and drainage pattern development.

Contributions submitted to this session should present new data and research methods that are relevant to unlock the basin evolution of the intra Carpathian area in terms of dynamic stratigraphy, and paleoclimatic evolution.
