Session description:  Geological modelling has become a strategic tool to analyse complex geological processes. This is mostly because in the last a few years analogue and numerical approaches have greatly advanced their potential, the former because of improved deformation and monitoring techniques, and the latter because of enhanced computational capabilities. These modeling techniques also give the unique opportunity to investigate relationships between processes acting at the Earth surface or at depth and at different temporal and spatial scales.
This session aims at bringing together experimental and numerical studies investigating different geological processes and their interactions, encompassing a wide spectrum of temporal and spatial scales. We welcome tectonic models at crustal or lithospheric scales, or involving long-term sub-lithospheric mantle processes, as well as models investigating surface processes or other complex geological systems. We expect contributions illustrating new laboratory and numerical modelling strategies, and we welcome studies comparing models with field and geophysical data, and that link direct observations with interpretations and predictions. Finally, we also encourage contributions dealing with planetary geology and that address processes shaping extra-terrestrial bodies.
