Dear colleagues, 


We would like to draw your attention to special session (T07):  Active
Tectonics and Earthquakes in China and Neighboring Regions: Kinematics,
Lithospheric Structure, and Dynamics, at the Western Pacific AGU meeting
that will be held in Beijing, China, July 24-27, 2006. 


This will be a great opportunity to meet colleagues with similar
interest in Asian active tectonics and earthquakes, and to see the
beautiful city of Beijing, the ancient capital of China and site of the
2008 Olympics game. 


The abstract deadline is March 16, 2006 for Electronic Submissions. Feel
free to contact us if you have any questions about the session or the
meeting in general.

Meeting website is at http://www.agu.org/meetings/wp06/

Looking forward to seeing you in Beijing!


Mian Liu and Peizhen Zhang, co-conveners



T07: Active Tectonics and Earthquakes in China and Neighboring Regions:
Kinematics, Lithospheric Structure, and Dynamics 

Crustal deformation in China and neighboring regions provides one of the
best examples of diffuse plate boundary zone deformation and intraplate
tectonics. The associated large earthquakes have been devastating in the
past, and could be even worse in the future given today's dense
population and highly developed infrastructure. In the past decades,
multidisciplinary studies including neotectonics, tectonic
geomorphology, paleoseismology, and space-geodesy have greatly refined
the kinematics of crustal deformation in China and neighboring regions.
Intensive geophysical surveys in China have continuously sharpened the
images of crustal and lithospheric structures. The wealth of kinematics
and geophysical data are enabling a new generation of geodynamic models,
facilitated by the rapid advancement of computing technology, to explore
the underlying physics of intracontinental crustal deformation and
earthquakes. This session will provide a forum for scientists working on
all aspects of active tectonics and earthquakes in east Asia to exchange
ideas and data, and to foster collaboration between field workers and
