Dear Colleagues,

I am writing to draw your attention to an upcoming session on the seismo-tectonics of the Arabian plate at this years American Geophysical Union meeting in San Francisco, December 14-18, 2009. No session dates or times are available at this time. Abstracts are due September 03, 23:59 Eastern Daylight Time (03:59 +1 GMT). Abstract submittal is through the AGU website: http://www.agu.org/meetings/fm09/program/abstract_submissions.php <https://webmail.um.umsystem.edu/exchweb/bin/redir.asp?URL=http://www.agu.org/meetings/fm09/program/abstract_submissions.php> 

A brief description of the session is given below, along with convener contact information if you have any questions.

Over the past 10 - 15 years, our understanding of Arabian Plate tectonics has yielded new insight into fundamental processes of continental collision, rifting, and transform faulting, as well as a valuable opportunity to evaluate the role of driving/resisting forces involved in plate motion.  This session aims to bring together, as oral and poster presentations, results of recent neotectonic, seismological, geophysical, and geodetic studies of the Arabian plate and its surrounding regions, including the Bitlis-Zagros collisional belt, the Red Sea / Gulf of Aden continental rifting and oceanic spreading, and the Dead Sea transform system.  The goal is to assemble a comprehensive view of the state-of-knowledge of the tectonic and geodynamic framework.
