IRESS 2017: Continental Margins II
This workshop will consist of two parts. The first will be to redefine our understanding of sequence stratigraphy in the context of contemporary concepts in sedimentary transport, climate, sea level, tectonics, mantle dynamics, and whole Earth system models. We will highlight key developments in technology and geologic data that have made scientific advances possible. The second part will consist of understanding the complex interplays between mantle and surface processes on the origin and development of the passive margin basement from the initiation of rifting to the maturation of an ocean basin. One of the goals of this workshop is to develop a new text, outlining passive margin evolution for the next generation of students and researchers. This will appear as a special issue in the American Journal of Science, edited by Kevin Biddle, Gerald Dickens and Cin-Ty Lee.
