Rheology of Earth Materials :

Closing the gap between timescales in the laboratory and in the mantle

29 August-2 September 2021 - 3rd European Mineralogical Conference

The third European Mineralogical Conference (EMC 2020), originally scheduled in Krakow (Poland) will finally take place on line from 29 August to 2 september 2021.

 

In the scientific programme, TimeMan will be represented by P. Cordier and V. Delbecq who participate on Thursday 2 September to Session T14-S1: Phase transitions, structures and physical properties of minerals as a function of P and T, organized by David Dobson, Sandro Jahn and Michele Zema.
