Please consider contributing to Fall AGU special session T26:
Origin and Significance of Syntectonic Veins.
We hope to attract a wide range of research including strucural geology,
precipitation kinetics, transport and dilation mechanisms, modeling
(kinematic, physiochemical), physical chemistry of crystal shape and
emerging techniques/ concepts to address the question of the formation
of syntectonic veins.
We welcome contributions at all scales using lab, field and theoretical
approaches to problems such as 1) the source of the fluid and
interaction with the host rock, 2) P-T conditions of precipitation, 3)
evolution and magnitude of stress during veining and deformation and 4)
mechanics of dilation leading to veining.
Submission deadline of abstracts is 8 September 2005.
