[S-IT32] [EJ] Recent earthquakes and deep structure of the Earth in and around Tibetan Plateau

Wed. May 24, 2017 5:15 PM - 6:30 PM Poster Hall (International Exhibition Hall HALL7)

Collision between the Indian and Eurasian plates resulted in the formation of the Tibetan Plateau. The continental collision geology and associated severe earthquakes have long been studied in the geosciences. In recent years, many new research projects have been launched in the region with exciting results and identification of some new scientific problems. In this session, we will focus on current issues about crustal uplift and growth of the Tibetan Plateau, and discuss new results from geophysics, geology, geodesy and geochemistry. This session will provide an interdisciplinary platform to encourage collaborations on studies of crustal and mantle structure, as well as the related seismic hazards of the Tibetan Plateau.
