13. THERMODYNAMICS, KINETICS AND MINERAL PHYSICS

TH131: Influence of reaction kinetics on rock microstructure, texture and micro-chemistry: Assessing the petrogenetic record
Convenors
: Rainer ABART, Fred GAIDIES, Tadao NISHIYAMA
Keynote:
Arkady GLIKIN, Invited: Masaaki OBATA, Atsushi OKAMOTO
Brief description of the session:
Reactions kinetics coins microstructure, texture, microchemistry, and bulk rock properties. Contributions are invited on applications of new techniques in instrumental analysis, experimentation and modeling that improve our ability to extract genetic information from natural rocks.

TH132: Thermodynamic behavior of Earth materials
Convenors
: Charles A. GEIGER, Edgar DACHS, Taku TSUCHIYA
Keynote:
Artur BENISEK
Sponsored by:
IMA Commission on Physics of Minerals (IMA-CPM)
Brief description of the session:

Study of the thermodynamic behavior of Earth materials plays a central role in the fields of mineralogy, petrology and geochemistry. This session will be devoted to experimental, theoretical and computational results on the themodynamic behavior of different natural phases.

TH134: Structure-property relations of minerals from atomistic models
Convenors
: Bjoern WINKLER, Renata WENTZCOVITCH, Martin DOVE, Keith REFSON, Sandro SCANDOLO
Sponsored by: European Mineralogical Union (EMU)
Brief description of the session:
The session will be dedicated to present novel approaches to elucidate the relations between structures and properties of minerals with atomistic (empirical potential or quantum mechanical) model calculations.

TH135: Interactions between solids and aqueous solutions from theory and experiment
Convenors
: Bjoern WINKLER, Manuel PRIETO
Inivted:
Thorsten STUMPF
Brief description of the session:

The session will be dedicated to present novel experimental and modelling studies of the interactions between aqueous solutions and mineral surfaces.

TH136: Mineral growth and interface processes
Convenors
: Katsuo TSUKAMOTO (IMA-CMGIP), Andrew PUTNIS, Juan Manuel García RUIZ
Sponsored by:
IMA Commission on Mineral Growth and Interface Processes (IMA-CMGIP)
Brief description of the session:

Nucleation and growth of minerals on earth and in space will be discussed based on the knowledge of crystal growth mechanism. New techniques to observe the surface phenomena and crystal growth are also welcome.

TH137: Nanoparticles: Structure, properties, reactivity
Convenors
: Jill BANFIELD, John MOREAU, Jan FILIP
Keynote:
Lee R. PENN, Invited: Carolyn PEARCE, Jiri TUCEK, Benjamin GILBERT
Brief description of the session:

Nanoparticles are abundant products of chemical reactions near the Earth's surface and are produced via industrial activity and for a variety of technological applications.

RELATED CLAY SCIENCE SESSIONS

TH138C11: Physical properties of clays at non-ambient conditions
Convenors: István VICZIÁN, Maria Franca BRIGATTI, Augusto MARCELLI, Annibale MOTTANA
Brief description of the session:

The focus of the session is to investigate physical properties of clays under high-pressure and high-temperature conditions, by means of both experimental and computational techniques.

TH139C12: Fabric anisotropy and its influence on physical properties of clay-rich rocks
Convenors: Daniele MALFERRARI, Giovanni VALDRÉ
Brief description of the session:

Fabric anisotropies give us important information to clarify geological events occurred under various and variable physical and chemical conditions. Contributions concerning texture measurements, applications of texture analysis, and novel experimental methodologies will be appreciated.
