  Information - TS8.1 Tectonics and magmatism: Interactions from the grain- to the orogen-scale

Event Information
Tectonics and magmatism: Interactions from the grain- to the orogen-scale

Partial melting drastically changes the rheology of the crust. This process promotes the localization of deformation from the grain-scale to the orogen-scale, affecting the paths of exhumation, the patterns of faulting, and the topography of orogens. On the other hand, melt chemistry, melt segregation, transport and emplacement are largely controlled by deformation and by the specific type of tectonic setting. We invite contributions from natural studies, analogue experiments, and numerical models, dealing with deformation of melt-bearing rocks and partial melting of tectonically active regions
