Dear Colleagues, 

Please consider submitting abstracts to the following session at the 2018 AGU Fall Meeting:

T031: Observations and models of multiphase deformation in rifts and rifted margins

Session Description:
Observations from rifts and rifted margins suggest continental extension commonly involves multiple phases of deformation with distinct structural, sedimentary and magmatic characteristics. In many rifts, deformation evolves both as a function of time and location, and rift architecture may reflect the influence of structural inheritance, evolution of the lithosphere’s thermal-mechanical profile, feedbacks between surface process and lithospheric deformation or large-scale changes in plate driving forces. Here, we solicit presentations that examine the long-term evolution of continental rift systems through field, geophysical and numerical investigations. In particular, we encourage submissions that focus on the processes driving changes in deformation style and use large 3-D observational or numerical data sets to characterize lithospheric deformation. 

Invited Speakers:
Donna Shillington (Columbia University)
Robert Gawthorpe (University of Bergen)

Rebecca Bell (Imperial College London)
Scott Bennett (USGS)
John Naliboff (UC Davis)
Jolante van Wijk (New Mexico Tech)

On behalf of the conveners,
