From subduction to post-collision: tectonics, magmatism and ore deposit controls along the Anatolian-Caucasian-Iranian segment of the Tethys belt
Conveners: Hervé Rezeau, Marc Hässig, Robert Moritz
The eastern extension of the Balkan and Aegean region into the Central Tethys orogenic belt is still the subject of open questions. This session devoted to the tectonic, magmatic and metallogenic setting of eastern Anatolian, Caucasian and Iranian belts aims at unveiling the complex regional evolution during convergence and collision of the Arabian, Eurasian and other Gondwana-derived terranes related to the closure of the different branches of the Neotethys during Mesozoic and Cenozoic times. Participants will have the opportunity to present recent findings and ongoing research on a variety of themes, including the successive subduction(s), collision(s) and post-collision events, the diversity of magmatic belts along both oceanic and continental settings, including their link with ore deposit formation along the Central Tethys orogenic belt.
