  Information - GMPV18 Melt inclusion as a tool for studying magma genesis: Advantages and limitations

Event Information
Understanding processes of magma-genesis on Earth is arguable one of the most important challenges to Earth Scientists today. However, the magmas that crystallize to form the igneous rocks now exposed at the Earths’ surface are likely to have undergone some degree of modification after magma-genesis and extraction from the source region. Studies of melt inclusions and their host crystals from these rocks have the potential to provide unsurpassed information on the origin and evolution of a range of magma types (silicate, carbonate, oxide, sulfide and phosphate). For this session we welcome contributions based on all aspects (natural, theoretical or experimental) of melt inclusions and their host crystals. In particular, we encourage submissions that investigate the advantages and potential pitfalls of melt inclusion analysis.
