  Information - TS12 Structure, deformation, and flow of hot orogens

Event Information
This session welcomes contributions from all fields of geosciences that contribute to understanding the tectonothermal evolution of hot orogens and/or weak lithosphere. Key topics include, but are not restricted to, the relations among structure, deformation, topography, flow, magmatism and metamorphism of transpressional, transtensional and mature collisional orogens through geological time. Emphasis will be put on multi-scale studies of magmatic arc systems, transpressive/transtensive crustal-scale shear zones, Precambrian orogens and mobile belts, Cordilleran orogens, high plateaus, and/or modern convergent orogenic belts in their late-orogenic stages. We encourage comparisons of these deformation systems and analysis at various structural levels. The session aims at gathering structural geologists, tectonicists, geophysicists, petrologists and modelers interested in 3D crustal / lithospheric deformation processes in relation to crustal / lithospheric mass balance.
A special issue of Tectonophysics is planned for this session.
