Dear colleagues,

We would like to encourage you to present your research in an exciting and
interdisciplinary session during the upcoming GSA meeting in Phoenix, AZ (22-25
Sept 2019):  T51:
<https://community.geosociety.org/gsa2019/learn/technical/topical>
<https://community.geosociety.org/gsa2019/learn/technical/topical>Shaping
the Landscape: The Interaction between Fractures, Erosion, and Plate
Tectonics <https://community.geosociety.org/gsa2019/learn/technical/topical>
.

This session focuses on how fractures form from and/or interact with
tectonic forces to subsequently modulate the landscape. Topics that could
be addressed include, but are not limited to: 1) fracture mechanics from
the scale of microcracks to plate-bounding faults; 2) interaction between
tectonic and topographic stresses; 3) evolution of tectonic landforms in
fractured material; 4) surface effects of damage zones along faults.

Invited speakers include Missy Eppes <https://pages.uncc.edu/mc-eppes/> (UNC
Charlotte) and Seulgi Moon <https://faculty.epss.ucla.edu/~sgmoon/> (UCLA).
The session is co-sponsored by the GSA Quaternary Geology and Geomorphology
Division and the GSA Tectonics and Structural Geology Division. We
are particularly excited about submissions that use interdisciplinary
approaches to study active landscapes in the fields of geomorphology,
structural geology, rock mechanics, geophysics, volcanology, and geodesy.

Abstracts are due June 25th. <https://gsa.confex.com/gsa/2019AM/cfp.cgi>

Thank you and hope to see you in Phoenix this fall.
