Session 1: Geodynamics — Rift to Drift

The geodynamics of assembly, rifting, and ultimate breakup of Pangea provide the template, framework, and constraints within which we develop our understanding of Atlantic conjugate margins. Today, potential field, seismic refraction and reflection data integrated and calibrated with DSDP/ODP/IODP and industry well data and plate kinematic reconstructions permit an unprecedented opportunity to evaluate the geology of these conjugate margins. We are soliciting presentations that can provide attendees the results of the latest research and the opportunity to understand better the processes, geology, and evolution of these conjugate margins.
