Rocks that show evidence for ultra high pressure (UHP) metamorphism contribute significantly to our understanding of large scale geodynamics, deep subduction and subsequent obduction. Many of the well-known UHP rocks represent continental material. This session encourages contributions from research on subducted ophiolites which show evidence for UHP metamorphism. The topic includes, but is not limited to, UHP assemblages in SiO2-deficient mafic and ultramafic rocks (field, experimental and theoretical), time scales of UHP metamorphism and exhumation, exhumation mechanism of UHP ophiolites, contrasting mechanisms to quartzo-feldspathic crustal UHP material.
