Element cycling in the deep Earth: short course by Vincent Salters

On Wednesday 8th November 2017, Vincent Salters (Director of the Geochemistry Program at the National High Magnetic Field Laboratory, and Professor at Florida State University) will hold the short course “Element cycling in the deep Earth: application through trace element and isotope studies” at the University of Pavia, Aula Scarpa, Strada Nuova 65.

The course is worth 1,5 ECTS (6 hours).

Program of the short course:
9.00 – 9.30: registration
9.30 – 12.30: first part
14.30 -17.30: second part

The global element cycling is governed by magmatic and hydrothermal processes occurring at Mid-ocean ridges and subduction zones, the two main contexts where the solid Earth is fractionated. These processes are well recorded by trace elements and isotopes.  The short course will focus on the use of trace elements and isotopes as geochemical tools to understand the element cycling in the Earth.

Professor Salters will be in Pavia to cooperate with Alessio Sanfilippo and Riccardo Tribuzio (members of our PhD program’s Academic Board).

No registration fee is required. Max number of participants is 100.
The course will end with an examination and participants will be given a certificate of attendance.
