I have been loosely connected with High pressure as well as
Low-grade working groups. The report of high pressure nomenclature is
already opened in web and is worth reading and trying. The best I think
is to use the proposed system by Rolf Schmidt and propose the revision.
It is not necessary we have final decision.
From another subcommision I received questionnaire a few years
ago, and I strongly argued that the subcommision should not try to
define a metamorphic facies by voting. Such a subject should be debated
I understand the complexity of leading the subcommission, but I
expect to know how common is a rock name is used for what. Thus we need
a poll of public opinion but not voting, though the former may be more
difficult to perform.
With my many thanks the colleagues who have been involved in
this complex and tedious job.
