A more complete listing of conferences related to volcanism in general can be found at If you are organising a meeting which includes a session on LIPs or any aspect of large volume magmatism, please contact Matthew Minifie at [email protected] Richard Ernst at Richard. A selected number of contributed papers will be scheduled for oral presentations and the other contributions will be put up as posters. Date: Monday, March 24, 2008 — Friday, March 28, 2008 Location: Austria Center Vienna, Vienna, Austria Web: Includes the following sessions: Session GMPV27 Large Igneous Provinces and their impact on life and environment Convenors: S. Chenet ([email protected]) Evidence of synchronism between the formation of many large igneous provinces (LIPs) emplacement and major rapid environmental and biotic crises has led us to consider a causal relationship between these [email protected] Geosciences.com) and we'll advertise it on the LIPs website. The testing of such a hypothesis requires a multidisciplinary approach to studies of the formation of LIPs and the consequences on life and the environment.This session will focus on: Intraplate volcanism – continents and oceans, from scoria cones to large igneous provinces Convenors: G. Kerr ([email protected]) Intraplate volcanism provides key insights into magma sources and magmatic processes.This volcanism encompasses a wide array of eruptive styles and products, and, on the continents, is an important component of volcanic risk in some areas. PRL is actively engaged in all these areas of research for the past several decades and the conference is organised as a part of its Diamond Jubilee Celebrations. Ray ([email protected]) The aim of the conference is to provide a forum for discussion on the present status and future perspectives in utilising modern geochemical and isotope techniques to understand the origin and evolution of the solar system, the chronology and causes of major events on Earth, past climate, and dynamics of various reservoirs in Earth.
We welcome abstracts that use any geochronological tool to constrain the rates of igneous processes.
Conferences Archive: 2008, 2009, 2010, 2011, 2012, 2013, 2014, 2015, 2016, 2017 Date: Tuesday, January 22, 2008 — Friday, January 25, 2008 Location: Physical Research Laboratory, Ahmedabad, India Web: Organisers: S. We invite papers on the topic of the generation and eruptions of LIPs, including both basaltic and silicic examples, as well as studies of the factors that control the accumulation of large, eruptible magma bodies, the evolution and dynamics of such bodies (including magmatic volatile concentrations), the volcanology of large volume eruptions (effusive and explosive).
The main themes of the conference will be: The conference format will comprise plenary addresses (covering broad aspects of each theme) and invited talks.
Session GMPV30 Geochronology of igneous processes Convenors: F. Renne ([email protected]) Single crystal Ar/Ar dating and ion microprobe U-Th/Pb multiple age determination in a single crystal show that magma residence times may vary from a few thousand years to more than several hundred thousands of years.
Complementary time information obtained from modelling the re-equilibration of the chemical zoning of crystals shows that magmatic assimilation or magma mixing can be much shorter, a few decades or less.
Collectively, the record of mafic dyke swarms provides information on “the pulse of the Earth” - that is, the rhythm of mantle melting events through time, from minor rift-related events, to the largest known igneous events (LIPs) on the planet extruding millions of km Date: Sunday, August 17, 2008 — Friday, August 22, 2008 Location: University of Iceland, Reykjavik, Iceland Web: the following sessions: Mantle plumes and plume-ridge interactions Convenors: B. Trønnes ([email protected]) This session is dedicated to geodynamic issues, including mantle convection, the origin and evolution of plumes, mantle melting, melt transport and along-axis melt variability.
