S3. Late Cretaceous tectonics, magmatism, and sedimentation of the South-Central region

Convenors: Bob Stern (, Peter Clift (, Asish Basu (

For the first 17 million years of the Late Cretaceous epoch (Cenomanian, Turonian, and Coniacian, and Santonian; 100–83.5 Ma) the south-central region of what is now the United States was affected by igneous activity. We invite geoscientists with different perspectives on the tectonics, igneous activity, and sedimentation of this enigmatic time period to share their insights and explore what might have been responsible for this regional unrest. Presentations that explore manifestations of unrest during this time interval both in the region and elsewhere around the globe are welcome.
