In anticipation of EGU2023 (23-28 April, 2023), we would like to draw your attention to the following co-organized session:
Metamorphism: a journey through time and space (GMPV6.1/GD6/TS12)
A description of the session is provided below. Abstract submission is open until 10 January 2023, 13:00 CET. All the best for the upcoming holiday season and looking forward to seeing you at EGU2023!

Metamorphism: a journey through time and space
Conveners: Matthijs Smit, Francesca Piccoli, Lucie Tajcmanova, Tom Raimondo, Richard Palin
Guest speakers: Laura Airaghi (University of Orléans), Thomas Zack (University of Gothenburg)
Metamorphic rocks are witnesses to the tectonic and geodynamic processes that shaped the global lithosphere. The record of their journey through time and space is written in their fabrics and assemblages. Resolving the "how, where and when" of metamorphic processes is crucial in the development of models describing regional and global tectonic processes, the transfer of elements within and between the crust and mantle, and the geodynamic evolution of the Earth.
With new methods and insights come new ways to interrogate metamorphic rocks, to constrain the cause and impact of metamorphic reactions, and to investigate secular changes in tectonic processes through time. This session aims to celebrate accomplishments made in the field, and to provide a platform for sharing and exploring innovative ways to investigate metamorphic processes across tectonic settings and geologic time. We invite contributions in metamorphic petrology, field research, geochronology, geochemistry, numerical modelling and tectonics, and especially welcome contributions that employ novel or cross-disciplinary approaches to make metamorphic rocks tell their story.
