Dear Colleagues,

Happy New Year!

Since the  EGU abstract deadline is approaching fast, we would like to draw again your attention to our session at the EGU General Assembly (May 3-7, 2020) entitled “Lithospheric localization processes across scales: from fault dynamics to plate boundary formation and evolution” (GD9/TS2). The session is detailed here below.

If you are interested in it, please consider submitting an abstract before the deadline, which is on 15th January 2020 (13h CET).

Looking forward to meeting you in Vienna!


Maëlis, Lukas, Whitney and Eline

Conveners: Lukas Fuchs, Maëlis Arnould, Whitney Behr, Eline Le Breton.

This year’s keynote speaker is Manon Bickert, IPGP, France.

In the Plate Tectonics theory, Earth’s lithosphere is described as a rigid outermost shell deforming over long timescales along narrow boundaries, that play a central role in our Planet’s thermal and dynamic evolution. Understanding the modalities of strain localization in the lithosphere and its failure are therefore essential to describe the formation and evolution of plate boundaries, fault zones and other mechanical heterogeneities. This requires knowledge of localization processes at both micro- and macro-physical scales, the analysis of their dynamics over various time scales, and involves complementary inputs from geological and seismic observations, laboratory experiments and numerical and analog modeling.

We welcome multidisciplinary contributions that will collaboratively help to build a unified view on the dynamical evolution of lithospheric localization processes. Example topics include but are certainly not limited to the study of variations in lithospheric properties deduced from mineralogical, petrological or geological data, and of the implication of lithospheric anomalies on the dynamics of fault zones and the formation and evolution of plate margins in nature or in models.

Important Deadlines and Milestones:

- Deadline for abstract submission: January 15th, 2020

- Early-registration/letters of invitation/childcare requests: March 31st, 2020
