RELICT – The Role of Lithospheric Inheritance on Subduction Initiation

We are pleased to announce and call for the participation of the scientific community at the RELICT Magellan Plus workshop, on 12-13 September 2019, hosted by IPMA, the Portuguese Institute for the Sea and Atmosphere.

This workshop is part of the MagellanPlus Workshop Series Programme co-funded by ECORD and ICDP.

RELICT has the aim to discuss the rationale to submit an IODP multiple drill proposal to retrieve cores across the continental Moho in the SW Iberia rifted Margin, the Ocean-Continent Transition (OCT) and the Africa-Eurasia transform-subduction plate boundary in the Atlantic.

The workshop is a timely fit with the JOIDES RESOLUTION’s timeline (drilling in 2023-2024 in the North Atlantic), and offers the possibility to tackle fundamental questions such as the nature of the lithospheric mantle in hyper-extended continental margins and OCT, and subduction initiation at transform faults.

Registration is free but mandatory for organization purposes.
Poster presentations are welcome.
IPMA is located at 10 min walk from the Lisbon International Airport and 20 minutes by subway from the Lisbon city center.
