This may include stratigraphic and proxy records of mass extinction, documentation of the petrology, chronology and geophysics of lips, petrogenetic processes, links to modern plume related volcanism, and modelling.
Focus will be on the North Atlantic lip and how it may have triggered the Paleocene-Eocene thermal maximum (PETM).
Conveners: Armann Höskuldsson (University of Iceland, armh [at] hi [dot] is) and Thor Thordarson (University of Iceland, torvth [at] hi [dot] is) Session 1.3.
Understanding Large Igneous Provinces and associated rapid environmental changes: from the North Atlantic Igneous Province and beyond.
New trends in the study of the crystallisation and evolution of layered mafic complexes For almost a century, layered mafic intrusions have been the natural laboratories for the study of fractionation of basaltic melts, providing the opportunity to test the results of liquidus experiments using idealized basaltic systems.
For almost all this time, Wager’s immensely successful cumulus paradigm has been the basis for much petrogenetic modelling and has governed our understanding of melt evolution.
We are looking forward to seeing you all in Denmark! It is your personal responsibility that all details such as address, booked events, number of tickets, hotel reservation, date of arrival and departure, etc. We therefore strongly recommend that you read and check the confirmation of registration carefully to avoid errors.
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.
The meeting aims to cover a wide range of geological topics and offers a venue for presenting research and networking with colleagues from the Nordic countries. Final Registration Participants must register at the registration desk upon arrival at the Meeting venue (Technical University of Denmark).
