Straits, seaways and gateways are gaining attention in Geosciences as they represent oceanic connections, heat conductors, sediment transport pathways and, when preserved in the rock record, georesource-bearing features fundamental for new scientific advances. Their understanding, from individual depositional systems to systems tracts, is thus crucial for improving their scientific knowledge and promoting new research frontiers. We want to encourage researchers to present latest breakthrough on the documentation of modern case studies and/or ancient examples of straits, seaways and gateways and their role in the reconstruction of paleogeographic scenarios, climatic and paleoclimatic frameworks, facies models, and stratigraphic traps. Applications of advanced techniques of data acquisition, image processing, geophysical-based subsurface modelling and hydrodynamic zonation are also welcome to this session.
