TOPO-Europe 10th Annual Workshop#

17–19 September 2014, Barcelona#


Topo-Europe addresses the 4-D topographic evolution of the orogens and intra-plate regions of Europe through a multidisciplinary approach linking geology, geophysics, geodesy and geotechnology. TOPO-Europe will hold its 10th Annual Workshop in Barcelona on 17–19 September 2014.

Topo-Europe 2014#

Interplay between surface, lithospheric, and mantle processes#

Barcelona, September 17-19, 2014#

(fieldtrip on 16th lead by Jaume Vergés)#

Important dates:#

  • Early-bird registration before June 30th
  • Regular registration until August 10th
  • Abstract submission until August 10th

The 2014 TOPO-EUROPE Meeting will be held in Barcelona at the CosmoCaixa Museum of Science located at the slope of the Tibidabo Mountain. This 3-day conference will focus on the links between topographic evolution, crustal and lithospheric mantle structures, and geodynamic processes occurring at various depth- and time-scales.
The conference will be multidisciplinary including participants from geodynamics, tectonics, seismology, sedimentology, geomorphology, oceanography, etc. Attendance is open but limited to a 100 participants, and contributions (mainly posters) will be welcome on all topics related to the evolution of the Earth's topography. Students’ attendance will be stimulated and stimulating. A preliminary program and registration details will soon be available.
