We invite you to submit a contribution to the EGU General Assembly 2016 (April 17-22, 2016) session: “Magma reservoir processes: integrating geophysics and geochemistry”

Magma chamber evolution is characterised by a plethora of different thermo-fluid-dynamical processes such as fractional crystallization, host rock assimilation, chamber replenishment, magma rejuvenation and magma mixing. All of these processes leave marks on the petrology of erupted products and, through the dynamical response of the surrounding host rock, on the geophysical records observed at the surface. However, the connection between surface observations and deep magmatic processes remains uncertain, and we must rely on indirect measurements. Experiments and physical modelling may help to define the links between magma reservoirs evolution and surface observations. In this session we would like to gather fresh and innovative contributions that tackle the evolution of magmatic reservoirs from detailed petro-volcanological studies to large-scale results of geodetic inversions. We look for contributions focused on field, experimental, and modelling approaches. Multidisciplinary studies are particularly welcome.

Please note:
As Guest Associate Editor of the special collection “Dynamics of magmatic processes” on American Mineralogist I invite the participants to the session with an eligible contribution to submit their manuscript to the special collection. Anyway, we will be able to discuss the details during the conference. Please feel free to contact me for any question.
