Dear Colleagues,
Please consider submitting an abstract to the following session at  
AGU this December.   We look forward to stimulating presentations and  
This session is sponsored by Tectonophysics, Seismology, Mineral and  
Rock Physics and Geodesy.
Thank you,
Noah Fay and Lucy Flesch

Session T23
Stress in the lithosphere:  Top-down or bottom-up control?
This session highlights new constraints on the origin, distribution  
and magnitude of stress in the lithosphere.  It is clear that  
deviatoric stress and its sources can differ dramatically from one  
tectonic environment to another and we wish to better determine both  
the origin and rheologic controls on these stresses driving  
deformation of the continents.  We especially encourage presentations  
that address the relative strengths of the crust and lithospheric  
mantle and thereby the role of each in controlling the rate and style  
of lithospheric deformation.  Contributions from theoretical,  
observational, and modeling studies are all welcomed, in particular  
those that use multiple complementary data sets.
