[S-MP08] Micro- to macro-scale deformation: petrologic, mineralogic, geophysical and geochemical checkpoints

Tue. May 26, 2015 11:00 AM - 12:45 PM A05 (APA HOTEL&RESORT TOKYO BAY MAKUHARI)

Convener:*Hafiz Ur Rehman(Department of Earth and Environmental Sciences, Graduate School of Science and Engineering, Kagoshima University), Tatsuki Tsujimori(Institute for Study of the Earth's Interior, Okayama University), Patrick J. O'Brien(Department of Earth and Environmental Sciences, Potsdam University, Germany), David Mainprice(Geosciences Montpellier, Montpellier University 2, France), Chair:Patrick O'Brien(Earth and Environmental Sciences, University of Potsdam), David Mainprice(Geosciences Montpellier, Universite de Montpellier,France)

This session aims at considering the deformational features associated with single grain to the regional scale orogenic belts (e.g. continent-continent collision, slab subduction, island arcs formation, and metamorphism). The deformational features recorded in rocks and minerals can be extracted via micro- to macro-scale (from the single grain scale to the scale of orogenic belts, and from the brittle to the ductile fields). Main topics include formation processes of new minerals/textures, their growth history, crystallization/recrystallization, EBSD fabric studies, and metamorphic reactions. Topics related to rocks and minerals formed in the processes of continental collisions, oceanic subductions, and regional metamorphisms are most welcome from the major orogenic belts worldwide.

The session also aims at exchanging ideas among geoscientists applying different approaches on problems related to the deformational features associated with continental collisions, slab subductions and metamorphic processes.
