We would like to bring your attention to the Session P20 at the next SIMP-SGI-AIV-So.Ge.I. congress "Geosciences: a tool in a changing world" (Pisa, September 4-6 2017):
"Integrating multiple techniques to constrain the evolution of basement geology"
C. Montomoli (UNIPI), E. Fazio (UNICT), S. Iaccarino (UNIPI), I.M. Villa (UNIMIB / Univ. Bern, Switzerland)
The unravelling of the tectono-metamorphic evolution of crystalline basement complexes has been one of the most fascinating and intriguing issues for generations of geologists, starting from the pioneering studies carried out on mountain belts such as the Alps, the Scottish Highlands, and the Himalaya. Different techniques were developed over the centuries to decipher and constrain this evolution. The achieved progress has made it clear that only a holistic approach based on the integration of various techniques can allow further progress in understanding the multifaceted geological processes. Detailed structural-geological field mapping integrated with meso- and micro-structural investigations, geochronology, petrologic modeling of metamorphic assemblages and petrofabric analysis are fundamental tools to infer helpful information to reconstruct a robust and accurate P-T-A-X-d-t path of crystalline rocks. For this session we invite basement geology contributions dealing with the integration of several techniques based on a strong structural analysis basis.
We would also appreciate if you could promote this session among colleagues.
Please remember that abstracts are due before the 15 of May 2017.

We are looking forward to see you in Pisa,
