  Information - TS10.3 Middle East Basins Evolution

Event Information
This symposium is about the tectonic and geodynamic processes that controlled the formation and the evolution of the sedimentary basins of the Middle East. A general goal is to develop a synthesis of the tectonic and stratigraphic evolution of the major post-Palaeozoic sedimentary basins in this area and, in this context, to further our understanding of the geodynamics of the Eastern Tethyan oceanic domain at both crustal and lithospheric scales. This has been the theme of a broad scientific programme called MEBE (Middle East Basins Evolution), active for the last several years, that has involved numerous European and Middle Eastern scientists. The region covered by MEBE comprises the Middle East itself and the Balkans-Black Sea-Caucasian-Caspian domain, including (1) the stable continental platforms of northeastern Africa and southeastern Europe and (2) the collision zones between Eurasia and Arabia-Africa consisting of major orogenic belts as well as less deformed continental blocks isolated within them. The symposium will provide a forum for several keynote presentations aimed at the synthesis of MEBE results but any and all contributions relevant to the general goals, whether involved in the MEBE programme or not, are emphatically invited.
