_____________________________________________________________

Dear colleagues,

We would like to encourage the contribution of abstracts to our session T045: "Tectonic, magmatic, and geodynamic studies of extensional processes: Applications in Iceland and the Nubia-Somalia-Arabia plate system" which will be hosted by the 2015 AGU Fall Meeting this 14-18th of December in San Francisco. The session details may be found below.

The deadline for abstract submission is August 5th, 2015 at 11:59 P.M. EDT (August 6th, 3:59 A.M. GMT). Abstracts may be submitted directly via this link: https://agu.confex.com/agu/fm15/preliminaryview.cgi/Session8278 <https://agu.confex.com/agu/fm15/preliminaryview.cgi/Session8278>

Session ID#: 8278

Tectonic, magmatic, and geodynamic studies of extensional processes: Applications in Iceland and the Nubia-Somalia-Arabia plate system

We invite contributions focused on understanding tectonic, magmatic, and geodynamic processes during rifting at various stages in development with specific emphasis on case studies in Iceland and the Nubia-Somalia-Arabia plate system. Active extension and volcanism along the East African Rift System as well as the adjoining Red Sea and Gulf of Aden spreading centers provide archetypal environments with which to examine both incipient rifts and recently-established seafloor spreading centers. Iceland offers a unique opportunity to directly observe the subaerial mid-Atlantic ridge - a fully-developed spreading center. We welcome petrological, geochemical, and computational investigations of mantle plume dynamics, extension-related volcanism and volatile flux, and magma supply, generation, and ascent. We also welcome geophysical, geodetic, geodynamic modeling, and geological research to better understand lithosphere-asthenosphere behavior, localization of deformation, mantle structure, structural inheritance, strain partitioning between brittle faulting and sub-surface creep, interplay between faulting and magmatism, and time-dependent plate-boundary deformation.

Confirmed Invited Speakers:
Freysteinn Sigmundsson (University of Iceland)
Wendy Nelson (Towson University)
Cynthia Ebinger (University of Rochester)
Oliver Shorttle (University of Cambridge)

Conveners: 
Cory Reed (Missouri University of Science & Technology)
D. Sarah Stamps (Virginia Tech)
Tyrone Rooney (Michigan State University)
Ian Bastow (Imperial College)

We look forward to your submissions, and hope to see you in San Francisco!

Best regards,

Cory, Sarah, Tyrone, and Ian
