Fluids are central to the geochemical evolution of high-pressure, high-temperature igneous and metamorphic environments. Petrologic processes, such as the genesis of magmatic rocks, mineral solubility, mineral growth, isotope transport and mass transfer are strongly related to the presence of fluids, and are evidently for example in form of fluid inclusions, veins and metasomatic features in samples in deep settings, including mantle xenolith, arc magmas, exhumed rocks associated with subduction, and a wide range of regional metamorphic terranes.
We encourage contributions in the field of metamorphic and igneous petrology, which address the questions and problems of fluid-rock interaction of diverse geological settings in order to advance our understanding fluid behavior at high-pressures.
We invite contributions covering a variety of high-P geological settings from subduction zones, as well as further down as to the mantle. Submissions of experimental, and field studies, as well as contributions based on theoretical models are welcome.
