[SCG59-01] Overview of geo- and thermo-chronology applicable to unravel the earth's surface evolution
Keywords:thermochronology, geochronology, earth surface
Many of those geological developments have been recorded in geological materials and can be decoded by modern geo- and thermo-chronological techniques (e.g., Kelly, 2002; Schmitt, 2011; Tagami, 2012; Herman et al., 2013; Sueoka et al., 2016; Ault et al., 2019; Malusa and Fitzgerald, 2019). In this presentation, we give an overview of geo- and thermo-chronology to tackle those geoscientific targets, especially focusing upon the plate convergence zone developments. These techniques, coupled with other available geophysical, geological and geomorphological information, place important constraints on the earth’s surface evolution.
