This session addresses the fundamental role that inclusions play to constrain geological processes in Planetary Science.
Inclusions hosted in crystals are parcels of melt(s) and/or fluid(s) that have the potential to unravel the P-T-X conditions under which igneous, metamorphic and volcanic processes take place. Moreover, inclusions provide critical constraints to the timescales of geological processes, (from millions of years to a few of seconds) occurred on Earth and other planetary bodies. Therefore, the study of melt and fluid inclusions contributes to develop chemically- and physically-based models of deep and surface processes acting under equilibrium and disequilibrium conditions.
We welcome contributions based on analytical and experimental approaches, as well as thermodynamic modelling, to study melt and fluid inclusions and the extent and significance of their post-entrapment modification. We strongly encourage the submission of multidisciplinary studies focused on linking inclusion datasets to field and geophysical observations (e.g., ground deformation, seismicity, gas emission) purposes.
