6th Annual AlpArray Scientific Meeting, Prague 2022

Dear Colleagues, We are pleased to announce that the  6th Annual AlpArray Scientific Meeting  will be hosted in Prague, from the 12th-15th of October 2022. This will be our final meeting, so we are hoping for an even bigger turnout than in recent years! The AlpArray project has moved beyond the seismological experiment (2016-2019) to a stage where the wealth of new data is being interpreted and debated. In addition, a spinoff in the form of a new project, AdriaArray, has started. The meeting will bring together geoscientists from the 17 member states and 64 institutions making up the AlpArray consortium, as well as others engaged in Alpine research that is relevant to AlpArray and AdriaArray. The scientific programme comprises three sessions on the surface, crust, and mantle of the Alps and neighbouring mountain belts and basins. We are delighted that Jaroslava Plomerová and her colleagues at the IGCAS in Prague have renewed their offer to host the meeting in collaboration with the 4DMB project. The meeting will be free for registered participants, as the running costs (including lunch and refreshments) will be covered by the 4DMB (German Research Foundation). Online registration and abstract submission will open 1 st of June 2022, and the deadline will be the 16 th of September 2022. Program 11th of October: Early-career scientists meetup and dinner 12th-15th of October: Main meeting from Wednesday morning until Friday afternoon Session Themes (Preliminary) 1. Connecting surface and mantle processes The growth and demise of mountains reflect the interplay of processes affecting the surface and the dynamics of Earth’s crust and mantle during subduction and collision. We seek contributions that assess and compare the roles of these different processes, especially in light of new data from AlpArray. This session aims to improve our understanding of surface responses (e.g., changes in morphology, surface uplift, exhumation, source-sink paths) to variations in crustal and mantle structure and its evolution along the Alpine chains.  2. Contrasting images of deep structure from crust to mantle The present-day structure of the Alpine chains as revealed by AlpArray is a key to understanding their orogenic evolution. This session focuses on the contrasting shapes and physical properties of subsurface rock bodies gleaned from a broad range of geophysical and geological observations. We welcome presentations on orogenic crust and mantle that reconcile diverse data sets and encourage contributions that emphasize first-order differences which seem (at first glance) to be irreconcilable. 3. Lithospheric motion and deformation on different time scales Alpine structure has changed in space as well as in time, the fourth dimension. This session highlights the motion and deformation of the lithosphere in the Alpine-Mediterranean region on time scales ranging from months and days to millions of years. We are particularly interested in contributions that further our understanding of major changes in plate kinematics during the Alpine orogenesis and their effects on local and short-term motion history within Alpine mountains and basins.

Conference: Annual EGU meeting

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.   To submit your abstract (you need to login to the EGU website): https://meetingorganizer.copernicus.org/EGU2020/abstractsubmission/36290 Please read the guidelines on how to submit an abstract carefully here. ----------------------------------- AlpArray meetings/events at EGU2020 - AlpArray " Surface wave , ambient noise and full waveform inversion Research Group" meeting: Sunday, May 3 2020 , right before the EGU meeting, University of Vienna.
