4. DEEP EARTH

DE41: Mineralogy of the Deep Earth
Convenors: Jay BASS, Razvan CARACAS, Kei HIROSE
Brief description of the session:
This session includes studies of mineral properties at extreme conditions, through experiments and computations, and applications of these properties for understanding the petrology, dynamics, seismic structure, and thermal state of the mantle.

DE42: Planetary Cores
Convenors: Gerd STEINLE-NEUMANN, Yingwei FEI, Eiji OHTANI (IMA-CPM)
Keynote:
Leonid DUBROVINSKY, Invited: Christopher SEAGLE, Shigehiko TATENO, Takeshi SAKAI
Sponsored by: IMA Commission on Physics of Minerals (IMA-CPM)
Brief description of the session:
We invite contributions on the planetary cores from the wide community including mineral physics, geochemistry, geo- and planetary sciences that provide important constraints on the evolution of the cores.

DE44: Diamond crystallization under natural and experimental conditions
Convenors:
William L. GRIFFIN, Gábor DOBOSI
Invited: Yakov WEISS
Brief description of the session:

DE45: Fluids in the Earth
Convenors:
Robert J. BODNAR, Sergey SMIRNOV (IMA-WGIM), Csaba SZABÓ
Keynote:
Jacques TOURET, Invited: Bernardo CESARE, Ronald BAKKER
Sponsored by: IMA Working Group on Inclusions in Minerals (IMA-WGIM)
Brief description of the session:

The session is related to the study of fluids and melts from the Earth’s interior for reconstruction of magma evolution, metamorphism, ore formation, sedimentary basin evolution, subduction processes etc.

DE46: Frontiers of ultrahigh-pressure metamorphism and deep subduction: From atomic scales to mountain building
Convenors
: Larissa DOBRZHINETSKAYA, Georg HOINKES, Shah Wali FARYAD
Invited:
Simon CUTHBERT, Alexey PERCHUK, Richard WIRTH
Brief description of the session:

We invite contributions presenting new developments in studies of mineral reactions, thermobarometry, geochemistry, geochronology, nanoscale mineralogy, microstructures, general topics of UHPM geology, microfabric analyses and tectonics connected to UHPM terranes.
