各位老師、先進好, 今年AOGS會議將在六月3-8日於夏威夷檀香山舉行,摘要截止日期已經很接近了,為1月19日,在此誠邀各位投稿時可以參考下列這個有關台灣與亞太地區造山運動以及其相關作用的session,也請各位鼓勵學生踴躍投稿參與。 各位先進若有任何疑問或建議,請不吝隨時賜教,謝謝。

陳致同 敬上

Dear Colleagues, AOGS 2018 is going to be held in Honolulu, Hawaii, USA on June 3-8, and the deadline for abstract submission is fast approaching (January 19). Please consider the session intimately related to Taiwan and mountain belts in Asia Pacific region when submitting your contribution, and encourage the students to participate. Information for the session is included in the following. Please contact me if you have any question about the session, thank you. Wish to see you there! Sincerely, Chih-Tung Chen SE16: Recent Advances in Understanding Mountain Building Processes: Methodology, Observations, Models and Implications Session Description: Orogenic belts offer insights into mountain building processes operating from the Earth’s surface to the base of the lithosphere under tectonic and climatic forcings. Mountain building processes at various timescales are responsible for the resources and geohazards concentrated both within active and ancient orogenic mountain systems throughout the Asia and Pacific regions. Facing the needs to deal with catastrophic events such as the Wenchuan and Gorkha mega-earthquakes, and the rising demands of mineral and energy resources, reevaluation of mountain building processes by updated knowledge on orogen architecture, kinematics, rheological evolution, and surface processes is essential. New studies in orogenic mountain belts can now be aided by advanced analytical capabilities in mineralogy/petrology, geochemistry, and geochronology/thermochronology, and by recent high-resolution topographic datasets, geophysical imaging and geodetic measurements, plus by improved physical and numerical simulations especially during the last decade. The ongoing research advances will progressively revolutionize our ideas on rock pressure-temperature-time history, tectonic wedge kinematics, rock exhumation, seismogenic faulting, fluid-rock interactions, mountain mass wasting, and tectonic-climate coupling, etc. With new methods, observations and insightful models, we expect improvements of our perceptions on the inner workings of plate tectonics and its imminent societal impacts. Contributions presenting recent documentations and hypotheses on all aspects of mountain building processes are welcome.
