Special session on Tectonic Geomorphology at 8th International Symposium of Eastern Mediterranean Geology, 13-17 Oct., 2014, Muğla, Turkey

A special session on Tectonic Geomorphology will be held at the 8th International Symposium of Eastern Mediterranean Geology from 13-17 October, 2014, in Muğla, Turkey. The session “Tectonic geomorphology: coupling between crustal deformation and landscape evolution in the Eastern Mediterranean” will be chaired by Sarah Boulton, Mustapha Meghraoui, and M. Cihat Alçiçek. Abstract submission is possible until 15 May.

Session description

The Earth’s surface reflects the interplay between tectonics, climate and erosion. Geomorphological studies have a long history in the analysis and calculation of deformation rates (e.g, marine and fluvial terraces) but recent advances in airborne (airflight, satellite) imagery, geochemistry and computing have changed our perception of landform evolution during Plio-Quaternary. New approaches and results have revolutionised the access to the record of crustal deformation and increased our understanding of the coupling between surface and deep Earth processes. In this session, we invite contributions from studies using geomorphological techniques to investigate earthquake deformation and the seismic cycle; Plio-Quaternary faulting, slip rates, and stress regimes; palaeoelevation, and cumulative surface deformation and relationship to landscape evolution. We encourage presentation of new results using novel techniques to investigate landscape evolution, from subsurface to the field, from geochemistry to physical models that enhance the understanding of the geodynamics of the Eastern Mediterranean regions.
