#EGU2020 Sessions in the Spotlight: Fluid-rock interaction: Kickstarter of metamorphic, deformation and geo-engineering processes

Do you like thinking about fluids? Do you also like thinking about rocks? How about fluids and rocks together? If you answered yes to all three of these questions, then here are two suggestions. The first is to ask for a set of these whiskey stones for Christmas (or, even better, just find some talc-schist and put it in the freezer, and marvel at the ability of a kitchenware company to charge so s ...[Read More]
