Third CCFS Lithosphere Dynamics Workshop

Dates:               5-6th November 2017 (Just before the SGTSG in Denmark, WA)
Registration:    Moot Court, UWA, Crawley Campus
Lectures:          Social Sciences Lecture Theatre (Room G.130)
Register:           Registrations Open !

Understanding the dynamics of the continental crust, mantle lithosphere and their interaction with the asthenosphere is fundamental for explaining the evolution of the Australian continent and the processes that led to its formation and today's state. Continental lithosphere geodynamics stands as an intriguing and controversial issue and currently represents a barrier in expanding our understanding of how the Earth evolved through time.

The remarkable progress in the acquisition of geological, geophysical and petro-chemical data for the continental lithosphere around the globe brings us to a third round of Lithosphere Workshops. 
This year we would like to concentrate on two important topics:

  1. Core to Crust - advances in modeling and not only.

  2. Construction and destruction of cratons. 

This workshop's primary objectives are to:

  1. Encourage detailed discussion on scientific and technical aspects of lithospheric-scale multidisciplinary problems.

  2. Foster interaction between different disciplines to answer the same questions.

  3. Introduce students, researchers and industry members to current research on lithospheric- scale processes, in an informal setting.

  4. Support national collaboration.
