  Information - GMPV11 Texture formation in high temperature rocks

Event Information
Igneous and metamorphic textures have attracted much attention because of their ability to provide detailed information about the crystallization history of rocks. These textures reflect the complex interaction between nucleation-, growth-, and deformation- induced in the rock as a result of changing physical conditions. However, to fully exploit the potential of small-scale textures, it is essential to identify the texture-forming processes. Metamorphic and igneous petrologists, as well as structural geologists have all approached these questions from different points of view. To advance our understanding of these fundamental processes we invite contributions from all these research areas that cover metamorphic, igneous and deformational aspects of texture formation. Field contributions, as well as theoretical and modeling studies are welcome.
