#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]

#EGU2020 Sessions in the Spotlight: Magmatic processes at divergent plate boundaries in space and time

Do you feel like a journey through time and space, all from the comfort* of a seat in the Austria Centre Vienna? (*comfort not guaranteed). Does your dream holiday involve Iceland, and not for Game of Thrones reasons? Are you jealous of those scientists who spend 12 hours in a tiny submarine just to look at the ocean floor and pick up some basalt? Then here is the session for you at the 2020 EGU c ...[Read More]
