Call for Abstracts for SS02 – Advances in Marine Geology and Geodynamics and their Application to Understanding Ancient Metallogenic Terranes
iMAGE-CREATE is sponsoring a special session at next year’s GACMAC2023 in Sudbury, Ontario. We invite abstract submissions for Special Session SS02 – Advances in Marine Geology and Geodynamics and their Application to Understanding Ancient Metallogenic Terranes
The present-day oceans provide a natural laboratory to observe the structural, kinematic and magmatic history of oceanic and arc crust, which comprise a significant proportion of greenstone belts and accreted terranes. Details of the spatial and temporal relationships of crustal growth observable in modern oceans are lost during terrane assemblage and associated deformation and metamorphism. This session will highlight studies of current processes of crustal growth in the oceans using modern marine geophysical datasets, collected during ocean-going expeditions, by regional monitoring and satellite missions, together with sampling of the seafloor, to understand the tectonic evolution of different domains of oceanic and arc crust. We invite contributions that use these datasets to advance our knowledge of marine geological processes and apply what is learned to ancient metallogenic greenstone belts and accreted terranes. This session is a contribution to ongoing studies in the CFREF Metal Earth and the NSERC CREATE program in Marine Geodynamics and Georesources (iMAGE).
Discovering Ancient to Modern Earth
The Joint Annual Meeting of the Geological Association of Canada, Mineralogical Association of Canada, and Society for Geology Applied to Mineral Deposits will be held in Sudbury, Ontario, May 24-27, 2023 with pre- and post-meeting field trips, workshops, and short courses.
The theme of the meeting is Discovering Ancient to Modern Earth, reflecting the location of Sudbury at the intersection of the Archean Superior Province, Proterozoic Southern and Grenville Provinces, and Paleozoic-Quaternary cover sequences. The conference will include an exceptionally diverse program of Symposia, Special Sessions, General Sessions, Field trips, Workshops, and Short Courses covering the complete spectrum of geoscience disciplines.
The meeting will be delivered in hybrid format with both in-person and virtual components. Abstracts, talks, and posters can be given in English or French.
