We also encourage contributions addressing mantle metasomatism, the interaction between asthenospheric melts and lithospheric mantle and the tectonic processes triggering intraplate magmatism.We invite research that explores the geochemistry of bulk lavas (including isotopes), melt inclusions, single phases (including mineral-mineral and mineral-melt equilibria) or xenoliths from intraplate volcanic settings such as ocean islands, intracontinental basaltic fields and highly alkaline rocks.
We seek contributions that model magma evolution, explore the new ideas, and evaluate and quantify the importance of in situ fractionation for the evolution of melts in magma chambers. Nielsen (GEUS), Marian Holness (Cambridge University) Session 1.6.
As modern-day Europe (Eurasian plate) and North America (North American Plate) separated during the final breakup of Pangea in the early Cenozoic Era.
This session will explore magmatic, tectonic and surface processes associated with the formation of the North Atlantic to our time.
Large Igneous Provinces (LIPs) are known to correlate in time with periods of mass extinctions and global warming in Earth history.
This session aims at presenting new observations and results on; the formation of lips, on mass extinction intervals, and on the possible causal relationships between lips and associated environmental changes.
