Sedimentary basins represent major archives of the Earth’s lithospheric to surface evolution. This session addresses the processes controlling the formation, evolution and architecture of sedimentary basins, including lithospheric-scale dynamics, source-to-sink relationships, stratigraphy, drainage development and surface alterations. We welcome studies in various natural laboratories, temporal and spatial scales, as well as in a variety of tectonic settings (such as intra-cratonic domains, extensional areas, passive continental margins, orogenic realms and their forearc and back-arc areas, transform fault systems).

This session aims at integrating a large range of methodologies from observations to modelling and data from different lithospheric levels, such as subsidence patterns, vertical motions, erosion and sedimentation dynamics, thermal structure, fluid-rock interactions, analogue and numerical modelling, sedimentology, magnetostratigraphy, geochemistry, petrography, thermo/geo-chronology, geomorphology, structural analyses, geophysical imagery, and seismology. We encourage contributions linking deep and surface processes.
