T038:
Syn-tectonic sedimentary depositional processes and source-to-sink dynamics at rifted continental margins





Session ID#: 27072

Session Description:
Syn-tectonic sedimentary depositional processes and source-to-sink dynamics at rifted continental margins have long been the focus of academic and industry studies. The temporal and kinematic relationships of genetically linked sequences provide crucial insights for the evolving stress field(s) at scales ranging from intracontinental East Africa styled rift basins to hyperextended continental margins like the south Atlantic. Advances in analytical techniques (e.g., detrital geo- and thermochronology), subsurface imaging (e.g. seismic reflection and refraction surveys), and drilling results have led to greater detailed and high-resolution understanding for sedimentary provenance and sediment dispersal processes in such terranes. Innovative study of the mechanics along magma-rich and magma-poor rifted margins enables dramatic advancement in understanding source-to-sink dynamics by detailed investigation of provenance, sediment routing, or chronostratigraphic relationships. This session seeks investigators applying novel analytical, conceptual, and numerical approaches towards more holistically understanding sedimentary provenance and depositional processes along passive and active rifted continental margins.
