Granitoids can be generated in all geodynamic environments and understanding the nature and petrogenesis of these rocks is thus crucial for deciphering the mechanisms of crustal growth and evolution. Despite recent advances in geochronology, trace-element and isotope geochemistry, as well as experimental petrology, the link between tectonic setting, genetic processes and granitoid typology is not yet well established.
This session is aimed at discussion of the physical and chemical mechanisms responsible for the genesis and evolution of granitoid magmatism in all geodynamic settings, their spatial and temporal changes, and how are these reflected in the mineralogy and the chemical/isotopic composition of intruding magmas. The aim is to bring together specialists in the fields of geodynamics and granitoid geology, petrology and geochemistry with experience in different tectonic settings of the World, in order to increase our knowledge about genesis and evolution of granitoid magmatism, and its role in crust formation and evolution.
