2020 Summer School

“Metamorphosis of Metamorphism”

The first international summer school on dis-equilibrium processes in rocks that will be held at the University of Pavia.

6th – 11th July 2020

The school will open with a brief overview of the theoretical background required for the understanding of the entire school. After the introduction the school will cover 5 high impact topics: mechanical equilibrium barometry; stress driven reactions; fluid rock interactions; seismicity and fault rocks.

23 leading scientists in their fields will give lectures and hands on practical courses as in the detailed program here below:
