RiMG Short Course: High-Temperature Gas Solid Reactions in Earth and Planetary Processes
Location: Boston, MA, USA (map)
Gas mixtures play a crucial role in distributing elements between different parts of Earth and planet-forming systems over a range of settings and temperatures. Despite the fundamental role of gases in geochemical cycles, the study of gas-solid interactions at high temperature is an emerging field in earth sciences. Currently, this area of research is spread between volcanology, planetary science, economic geology, environmental science, chemical engineering, chemistry, and metallurgy. The aim of this short course is to share the different approaches in this rapidly developing area. We will cover experimental work; modelling approaches; atom-scale reaction mechanisms; thermochemical and kinetic investigations; observations from active volcanic systems; and evidence for these reactions in the solar system and beyond.
