    Dear Colleagues, 
    The abstract submission for AGU Fall Meeting 2023 in San Francisco is now open. If you focus on the Andes, we warmly invite you to submit your abstract to our Andean session by August 2, 2023 at

    Our two invited speakers are Brian K. Horton (University of Texas at Austin, USA) and Jiashun Hu (SUSTech, China).

    We sincerely appreciate your thoughtful consideration and look forward to your valuable contributions. Should you have any inquiries or require further assistance, please do not hesitate to contact us!

    Best regards,
    Your session conveners:
    Sibiao Liu (GEOMAR Helmholtz Centre for Ocean Research Kiel, Germany,

    Laura Giambiagi (CONICET, Argentina,
    Mauricio Parra (Universidade de Sao Paulo, Brazil,

    Session Description:

    The Andes in South America stands as the second highest mountain range on our planet, and it has been shaped by tectonic forces for millions of years. This natural tectonic laboratory potentially records the links between deep Earth and surface processes that are multi-temporal and multi-spatial, including subduction, collision, volcanism and earthquakes, weathering, erosion and sedimentation, as well as their impacts on georesources and geohazards. In this light, the Andes presents an archetype of subduction-related orogenesis formed by deep and shallow tectonic processes interacting in a multidisciplinary fashion. We warmly invite contributions from researchers in structural geology, geo- and thermochronology, geophysics, geodynamics, geochemistry, petrology, and sedimentology who are interested in exploring the tectonic anatomy of the Andes from the surface to the deep mantle. These new multidisciplinary efforts will expand further our understanding of the dynamics and evolution of the Andes.
