Dear colleagues,

We invite you to submit an abstract to our AGU session “East Asia 
tectonic and geodynamic history since the Mesozoic” for the upcoming 
AGU2018 Fall meeting in Washington D.C., December 10-14, 2018:

Session description:
It has been challenging to constrain the plate tectonic history of NE 
Asia, SE Asia, and the SW Pacific since the Mesozoic due to its 
relative isolation from the global plate circuit, intra-continental 
deformation, and extensive subduction. Recently debated topics include: 
the regional subduction and collision history; the lithospheric nature 
of the region; the origin of displaced continental fragments and 
ophiolites; intra-continental volcanism and rifting; the initiation and 
evolution of marginal seas and their driving forces; mantle imaging and 
plate tectonic implications; dynamic topography; and, the 
plate-tectonic history of the western Pacific, paleo-Pacific and 
western Panthalassa. We invite contributions of new observational 
constraints and novel syntheses on any aspect of the Mesozoic to 
present-day tectonic history of Asia and Oceania from geology, 
geophysics, geochemistry, seismology, stratigraphy, paleomagnetism, 
geochronology and related fields. We also welcome geodynamic models 
using constraints from these regions, or tectonic comparisons of other 
regions to East Asia.
