I’m excited to have the opportunity to co-chair a session at this fall’s Geological Society of America Annual Meeting in Seattle, Washington. The session, entitled “Challenges in Tectonics 4: Planetary Evolution in Four Dimensions: The New Global Tectonics”, is part of a broader initiative to define the grand challenges in the field of structural geology and tectonics. With help from co-chairs Dr. John Hole and Dr. Robert Moucha, this session will highlight cutting-edge research related to these themes.
Please consider submitting a proposal to this session! The abstract submission deadline is August 1, 2017.
Session description: We seek contributions to understanding Earth’s 4D evolution as a global tectonic system from transdisciplinary datasets and numerical models, with emphasis on frontier research areas (setting or process) and new or developing analytical techniques.
