GOLDSCHMIDT 2017

In standard13th August, 2017

SESSION 06C Geodynamicists, structural geologists, petrologists and mineralogists are driven by the same essential curiosity about processes affecting the Earth’s crust and lithosphere, and use different tools to understand these processes. If properly quantified and interpreted, fabrics and microstructures in rocks provide fundamental constraints on lithospheric evolution. It has been recognized that deformation and mineral

EMC – 2016 – WORKSHOP

In standard16th September, 2016 EMC – 2016 – WORKSHOP Solid inclusions in minerals as records of geological processes Recent developments in experiment and theory allow the stress state in solid mineral inclusions to be measured accurately and precisely. This allows the measured stress states to be interpreted as entrapment conditions, thus identifying P-T points in the rock history. The methods involve non-linear elasticity as [...]
