************************************************************************************************

Dear Colleagues,

We welcome your contributions to a new session for the 2011 AGU Fall Meeting. This session emphasizes new directions and ideas in igneous petrology that bring together current research and future questions in the field, both in analytical methods and geologic theory. We especially encourage early career geoscientists to submit to this session. If you have any questions about the session, please feel free to email one of the conveners listed below. Remember, the AGU abstract deadline is now AUGUST 4.

V47. Where Do We Go From Here: Frontiers and Challenges in Igneous Petrology
(http://sites.agu.org/fallmeeting/scientific-program/session-search/896)

The last decade has seen remarkable advances in analytical techniques for isotopic, trace element and age determination along with geochemical  and petrologic modeling. These data and models have allowed us to probe the longevity, geometry, origin and processes at work in magmatic systems. This session hopes to look at where the key areas of inquiry lie for igneous petrology over the next decade, focusing on examples of the new frontiers of research. It will also look at what challenges lie ahead when trying to understand magmatic processes in light of decreasing detection limits and more precise measurement capabilities. We hope to emphasize early career petrologists and their ideas for the future of the discipline.

Conveners:

Erik Klemetti (klemettie@xxxxxxxxxxx)
Denison University - USA

Michael Rowe (mcrowe@xxxxxxx)
Washington State University - USA
