Rheology of Earth Materials :
Closing the gap between timescales in the laboratory and in the mantle

7 May 2023 - Mineralogy 2022: the book !

A publication celebrating the Year of Mineralogy

This volume edited by Luca Bindi and Guiseppe Cruciani celebrates mineral sciences on the occasion of Mineralogy 2022 and what are considered the most important progresses and breakthroughs in this discipline. Authoritative authors, who, in most cases, are the direct discoverers recount the steps of their research, which represent landmark developments of mineralogy and mineralogical crystallography.
