 AGU Fall Meeting

​Session   T13B.    New Advances on the Geologic and Tectonic Framework of Colombia and Its Surrounding Regions    I

The crustal evolution of Colombia is the result of multiple accretion deformation events that took place from Paleoproterozoic to Holocene, and modern interactions between the South American, Nazca, and Caribbean Plates. The longevity and diversity of its geological record make Colombia and surrounding regions suitable for studying local events and for understanding regional tectonic phenomena. The data acquired over the last 20 years provide an opportunity to rethink our understanding of the geologic and tectonic processes that have shaped the region. Such studies are critical to identify major challenges and explore strategies to address these in the future. This session aims to foster interdisciplinary exchanges and discussions about the geological evolution of Colombia and surrounding regions, but also to provide new research focuses and open opportunities for research collaborations. We welcome contributions at the local and regional scale that span tectonics, stratigraphy, sedimentology, geochronology, petrology, geophysics, paleontology, and related areas.
