T022:
Integrated view of the Gulf of California and adjacent western Mexico and U.S.A. plate boundary: Tectonics, geophysics, structure, volcanology, petrology, stratigraphy and sedimentology, paleontology, geomorphology, geochronology, ore deposits and hydrothermal vents, and marine geology





Session ID#: 25313

Session Description:
The Gulf of California and the surrounding parts of western Mexico, and the Salton Trough and surrounding parts of the USA, form an ideal natural laboratory for studying a very broad spectrum of inter-related geological and geophysical processes. Prior AGU sessions have focused on particular aspects, such as tectonophysics or marine geology, but all of the topics listed in the title for this session can be better understood when considering advances in the other topics listed therein. The new venue for 2017 (New Orleans) can attract a broader spectrum of researchers than those that normally attend AGU. Now is the time to synthesize results in a multi-disciplinary session that will attract workers in all aspects of the geology and geophysics of the Gulf of California/Salton Trough and adjacent western Mexico and U.S. region. We solicit posters from a very broad base, and especially encourage interdisciplinary contributions.
