Dear colleagues,
A congress will be held in Aix-en-Provence (July, 5-9 2010). This 
conference is dealing with the geodynamics, geophysics and tectonics 
around the Philippine Sea Plate, especially near Taiwan. During the last 
twenty years of the XX th Century, growing interest in plate collision 
led the international Earth Sciences community to study the mountains of 
Taiwan. Because of its young geological age, high rates of horizontal 
and vertical movements and extreme demographic concentration, the Taiwan 
mountain belt has become an international reference for collision, 
mountain building and processes. During the early years of the XXI st 
century, studies on Taiwan experienced spectacular development triggered 
by a dire need for natural hazard mitigation and environmental studies.

In Taiwan, unraveling deformation processes and their interactions with 
climate-controlled surface processes requires time integration of 
multidisciplinary studies covering the whole orogen, to account for its 
unique 3-D active geodynamic setting. As these interactions control 
fault evolution, uplift inside the orogen and localization of 
exhumation, a significant part of the sessions will concentrate on the 
relationships between vertical and horizontal components of deformation, 
as compared at different spatial and time scales, from long-term to 
short-term evolution, accounting for the impact of surface processes and 
for the thermo-mechanical evolution of the wedge.

Please connect to for more information.

Sincerely yours,

Lionel Siame
