hosted by Mountain-Building in 4-Dimensions (4D-MB)
Senckenberg Institut, Grüner Hörsaal, Arthur-von-Weinberg-Haus, Robert-Mayer-Str. 2, 60325 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 contibute with a talk and/or a poster.
Probing re-organizations of the lithosphere (Invited speaker: Thorsten Becker, Univ. of Texas, Austin)
Surface response to changes in deep structure (Invited speaker: Taylor Schildgen, GFZ Potsdam)
Capturing deformation of the crust and mantle (Invited speaker: Sergei Lebedev, DIAS, Dublin)
Tracking motion and seismicity (Invited speaker: Nicola d'Agostino, INGV, Rome)
Selected contributions of the meeting will be published as a special issue in a journal to be announced.
Dinner for early career scientists
We will organize a dinner on Wednesday, 13th, for all participating early career scientists. Please indicate whether you wish to join under this link. The dinner will start at 7:30 pm in the restaurant "Frau Rauscher".
There will be a child care service available during the meeting. If you want to make use of this service or if you have other questions regarding child care during SPP related meetings, please contact Emanuel Kästle until the 15th of October (email@example.com).
The beamer in the meeting room is optimized for widescreen (16:9) presentations. The poster walls have a maximum format of 100x220cm (portrait).
