Dear colleague,

we would like to draw your attention to the EGU session:

Integrating geodetic and geological studies of active crustal

which will take place during the EGU General Assembly in Vienna,
Austria, 22-27 April 2012.

The general idea of this session is to examine progress and open
problems of combining data sets from different disciplines and at
different temporal and spatial scales to improve our understanding
of active custal deformation. Beyond the remarkable consistency
between e.g. geodetic and geological estimates at large scales (e.g.
plate motions), there are a lot of settings where significant
discrepancies between different types of data are still not resolved.

What are the reasons for existing discrepancies? This shall be
discussed during the session that aims to bring together geodesists,
geologists and geomorphologists in order to compare and combine
their data sets of tectonic deformation in various interplate
and intraplate settings, to pinpoint the tectonic environments
most prone to problems of data inconsistency, and to examine
the reasons of diverging geodetic and geological rate estimates
if they exist. It especially welcomes contributions that discuss
data fusion approaches in order to derive improved 3D surface
displacement fields as well as models integrating geodetic and
geological data.

Please find a more elaborated session description in the
appendix. We would like to encourage you to submit an abstract
to this session by latest 17 Jan 2012 using the link:

We would also like to announce that the Deadline for Support
Applications is 15 December. EGU hopes to support even more
attendees this year, so it might be a good opportunity to get
some of your travel costs refunded.

Please feel free to forward the call for abstract to any
colleague who might be interested in the session.

We are looking forward to meeting you in Vienna.
