ScopeWe welcome studies that focus on the deformation, fluid flow, and dynamics of convergent margins using theoretical, laboratory or field-based studies. The focus is on processes that occur in the crust and lithospheric mantle both in subduction zones and collisional belts. We welcome presentations using a wide variety of approaches and hope that this session will stimulate discussion between experts from different backgrounds and help develop a better understanding of these important lithospheric domains.
