Dear colleagues,

as you might have seen, at this year’s EGU there are many great session proposals focusing on various aspects of continental rifting. Here I‘d like to advertise our broad and multidisciplinary session on active rifts and rifted margins entitled "Continental Rift Evolution: Tectonics, Topography, Transients". 

We already received fascinating abstracts taking us to the North Atlantic, East Asia, Antarctica, East Africa and the Red Sea. We are also happy to announce a solicited presentation by Hans Christian Larsen and Geoffroy Mohn entitled "South China Sea rifted margin structure: A cross between magma-poor and magma-rich margin formation?"

You can submit abstracts to our session until 13:00 CET of this week’s Thursday (10th of January 2019) through this link: https://protect-au.mimecast.com/s/AwYrCk8vAZtv2loOs2oq-v?domain=meetingorganizer.copernicus.org <https://protect-au.mimecast.com/s/AwYrCk8vAZtv2loOs2oq-v?domain=meetingorganizer.copernicus.org>.

We look forward to seeing you in Vienna.
Kind regards,

Session TS6.1/GD5.6/GMPV2.12/SM1.24
"Continental Rift Evolution: Tectonics, Topography, Transients"

Continental rifting is a multi-facetted process spanning from the inception of extension to continental rupture or the formation of a failed rift. This session aims at combining new data sets, concepts and techniques elucidating the structure and dynamics of rifts and rifted margins. We invite submissions highlighting the time-dependent evolution of processes such as initiation of faults and ductile shear zones, tectono-magmatic and sedimentary history, lithospheric necking and rift strength loss, influence of the pre-rift lithospheric structure, mantle dynamics and associated effects on rifting processes, as well as continental break-up and the transition to sea-floor spreading. We encourage contributions using multi-disciplinary and innovative methods from field geology, geochronology, seismology, geodesy, marine geophysics, plate reconstruction, or modeling. Focus regions may include but are not limited to the Atlantic, Indian Ocean, Mediterranean and South China Sea (e.g. IODP 367/368 area) rifted margins, or the East African, Eger, Baikal and Gulf of California rift systems. Special emphasis will be given to presentations that provide an integrated picture by combining results from active rifts, passive margins, failed rift arms or by bridging the temporal and spatial scales associated with rifting.
