AlpArray Scientific Meeting
hosted by Mountain-Building in 4-Dimensions (4D-MB)
Senckenberg Museum, Frankfurt-am-Main, Germany, November 13-15, 2019
This meeting highlights the first data and results of the AlpArray mission, a European project launched in 2015 to image the structure of the Alps from their surface down to several hundred kilometers depth in the mantle. It tests the hypothesis that re-organizations of Earth’s mantle during the collision of tectonic plates have both immediate and long-lasting effects on crustal motion, fault kinematics, earthquake distribution and surface evolution. It attempts to understand linked processes between Earth’s surface and mantle beneath mountain belts by integrating 3D imaging of the entire crust-mantle system with geologic observations and modeling. This multi- and interdisciplinary approach enables us to look both backwards and forwards in time, the 4th dimension.
We invite all AlpArray members as well as members of the international Earth Science community to submit abstracts for talks and/or posters.
