Ph.D. SCHOOL “Carbon forms paths and processes in the Earth”


Società Geologica Italiana

15-­20 OCTOBER 2017

Lake Como School of Advanced Studies Ph.D. Course on Chemical, Geological and Environmental Sciences (Milano Bicocca, Italy)

The international School will present the state of the art of research studying the forms, the paths and the processes of Carbon in the Earth, in order to address the long-­‐term fate of Carbon on the planet.
The School will consist of a series of invited lectures, practical sessions on cutting-­edge techniques, and contributions from partcipants.
This 5-­days School is intended to bring together scientsts, Ph.D. students and Post-­‐Docs
with broad international representation in geochemistry, petrology, experimental mineralogy and petrology, materials science, thermodynamics, volcanology, geodynamics, and geophysics.

Physics and chemistry of carbon compounds •Nucleation processes, thermodynamic and kinetic propertes • Organic carbon compounds • C-­O-H Fluids thermodynamics • Carbon transport during subduction • Carbon speciation in deep fluids • Carbon processes at the slab mantle interface • Diamonds • Carbon and melting of the Earth's mantle • CO2 budget of magmas • Earth's CO2 degassing • CO2 degassing and seismogenesis.
