GM3.3

Morphogenic earthquakes and the evolution of tectonic geomorphology (co-organized)
Convener: Zhikun Ren 
This session explores the origins and evolution of tectonic geomorphology from short-term to long-term deformations, which are multi-discipline researches involving geomorphology, tectonophysics, earthquake geology as well as thermochoronology. Researches of the evolution of tectonic geomorphology of plateau margins and orogenic belts are usually a long-term issue. However, current geomorphology is gradually formed; therefore the repeated morphogenic earthquakes are definitely involved. The linkage between short-term and long-term geomorphic evolution is the key to understand the evolution of tectonic geomorphology. We encourage contributions from both short-term and long-term deformations that address the evolution of tectonic geomorphology.
