  Information - IS71 - GMPV05/GD6/GD7 Mid-ocean ridges: interaction of structure, geodynamics, magmatism and hydrothermal circulation

Event Information
This session is intended to bring together researchers working in the in-situ oceanic crust and on ophiolites to discuss the variety of chemical and physical processes related to MORB magma chambers beneath the ocean ridges. Topics will include: (1) interaction between MORB melts and the sub Moho mantle,(2)formation of the MOHO transition zone, (3) shallow-level differentiation of MORB including related experimental studies, (2) formation of cumulate gabbros, (4) the transition zone between gabbro and sheeted dikes, as recently drilled by IODP expedition 312, (5) deep seawater-related activity at the interface between magmatic and hydrothermal processes.
