Fluid and Melt Inclusions: Applications to Geologic Processes

Organizers: Pilar Lecumberri-Sanchez (U Alberta), Matthew Steele-MacInnis (U Alberta), Daniel Kontak (Laurentian U)

The focus of this short course will be on the state of the art use of fluid and melt inclusions to answer geologic questions relevant to paleoclimate, basin reconstruction, metamorphism, magmatism and mineral deposits.
Day 1
1. Introduction (Bob Bodnar)
2. Unraveling structural diagenetic processes in sedimentary basins using fluid inclusions. (Andras Fall)
3. Fluid inclusions & basin modelling: limits and advantages to decipher complex fluid-rock interactions with time (Jacques Pironon)
4. Applications of fluid inclusions to studies of sediment-hosted base metal ore deposits (Martin Appold)
5. Characterizing fluid and melt in high-grade metamorphic rocks (Omar Bartoli)
6. Bring your own samples and hands on teaching samples.
Day 2
1. Fluid and melt inclusions in diamond as insight into mantle processes (Evan Smith)
2. A review of sulfide, silicate and fluid inclusions in mafic and felsic plutonic rocks (Jake Hanley)
3. The reliability of melt inclusions to study volcanoes (Rosario Esposito)
4. Fluid inclusions in mineral deposits: exploration, genetic models and magmatic hydrothermal ore deposits (Simone Runyon, Matthew Steele-MacInnis, Pilar Lecumberri-Sanchez)
5. Melt and Fluid Inclusion Studies Through Time: Yesterday, Today and Tomorrow (Robert Bodnar)
6. Bring your own samples and hands on teaching samples
