2014 EGU General Assembly in Vienna (April 27 - May 2)
We invite you to submit an abstract to session GMPV20 on "Granites -
Archaean to present." We are hoping for a broad range of contributions
that address a wide range of processes associated with granitoid
petrogenesis and how these may have changed through time.
The solicited speakers are:
Federico Farina -- The origin of radiogenic isotope variability in
granites: intracrustal recycling and/or juvenile crust production?
Othmar Müntener -- Granite formation and the continental crust: An
experimental perspective on the key role of deep crustal fractionation.
The General Assembly website is here: http://www.egu2014.eu/
The Call for Abstracts is here:
The session is in the GMPV – Geochemistry, Mineralogy, Petrology &
Volcanology Program Group and the abstract deadline is January 16, 2014.
Here is the session description:
Granitoids are the dominant component of the continental crust. This
session examines all aspects of granite petrology and geochemistry: the
extraction of melts; the processes that control the evolution from melt
to granite; the emplacement, cooling and textural development of
granites; the ore systems associated. Contributions from the fields of
experimental petrology, geochemistry, mineralogy, field studies, etc.
are welcome in this session. A particular focus of this session is the
long term evolution of granitic magmatism, from the past to the present.
We look forward to seeing you in Vienna at the mid-point between Hutton
