Conference: Annual EGU meeting

May 03, 2020 - May 08, 2020

The EGU General Assembly 2020 will take place in Vienna (Austria) on 3–8 May 2020. There will be a special AlpArray session and several research group meetings.

AlpArray session at EGU2020

Dear colleagues,
After successful sessions since 2012 and almost 4 years of recordings by the AlpArray Seismic Network, we invite you to submit an abstract to EGU 2020 session:

TS7.6: The Alps and neighbouring mountain belts (Apennines, Dinarides, Carpathians): a multidisciplinary vision (AlpArray)

Conveners: Anne Paul, Mark Handy, György Hetényi, Marco Malusá and Irene Molinari

Abstrct: The Alps have been intensively studied by geologists for more than a century, providing a unique natural laboratory to deepen our understanding of orogenic processes and their relationship to mantle dynamics. Although most concepts that underlie current studies of mountain belts and convergence dynamics were born in the Alps, the belt is now being examined with renewed vigour in the AlpArray project. This project involves a large number of European institutions, with efforts focused on the AlpArray Seismic Network to provide homogeneous seismological coverage of the greater Alpine area at unprecedented aperture and station density, both on land and sea. New data is being recorded in a multidisciplinary research effort, and other projects are being planned in the immediate and mid-term future.
Within this context, we invite contributions from the Earth Science community that highlight new results in AlpArray and that identify and solve key open questions of the present and past structure and dynamics of the Alps and neighbouring orogens. Both disciplinary and multi-disciplinary contributions are welcome from geophysical imaging, (seismo)tectonics, structural geology, gravimetry, geodesy, geodynamics, petrology, geochronology and other allied fields, combined with various modelling approaches. Scales of interest range from crustal to upper mantle, in the Alps and neighbouring mountain belts such as the Apennines, the Carpathians and the Dinarides.

Please note that the deadline for abstract submission is January 15, 13:00 CET.
