Volcanic and Magmatic Studies Group (VMSG) Annual Meeting

Start Date: 
Wednesday, January 6, 2016
End Date: 
Friday, January 8, 2016

Location: Dublin, Ireland

Web: http://www.tcd.ie/Geology/vmsg2016/index.php

Includes the following session:

LIPs, rifting and element cycling in the mantle

Chairs: Mike Widdowson (m.widdowson@hull.ac.uk), Sally Gibson (sally@esc.cam.ac.uk), Emma Tomlinson (tomlinse@tcd.ie)

This session will investigate the genesis of the wide variety of primitive magmas that are found in intraplate settings, LIPs, rifts and ocean basins. In addition to petrological studies and emplacement histories, we also invite contributions that attempt to decipher the chemistry and isotope composition and heterogeneity of the mantle and their information on long-term element cycling in the silicate Earth.
