Welcome to the web portal of
EURopean Intensive Seminars of Petrology
In a Series of six Schools, running between 2007 and 2010, young European researchers in metamorphic petrology will convene with world-class scientists to learn the state of the art in the relevant disciplines of their research.
The intensive, residential format of the Schools will enhance transfer of knowledge, sharing of experience, building of contacts for future career and research developments.
This web site acts as a permanent repository of teaching material, and as an active forum for discussion and dissemination.
The events aim at forming the core of the next generation of researchers in Metamorphic Petrology, characterised by interdisciplinary, high training level and greater attention to application to industry and society.
EURISPET is run by a network of six partners:
- University of Padova (Bernardo Cesare, coordinator)
- Eotvos University - Budapest (Csaba Szabo)
- ANU-Canberra (Daniela Rubatto)
- University of Granada (Maria Teresa Gomez-Pugnaire)
- IPGP-Paris (Gaston Godard)
- ETH Zurich (Peter Ulmer)
The six Schools and their themes will be:
|Paris||October 2007 ||State-of-the-art analytical and imaging techniques in petrology |
|Canberra||February 2008||Isotopes applied to petrological problems|
|Budapest||August 2008||Petrology of the lithosphere in extensional settings|
|Granada||June 2009||High-pressure metamorphism and subduction zones|
|Padova||June 2010||High-temperature metamorphism and crustal melting|
|Zurich||November 2010||Experimental Petrology and Rock Deformation|
