MARGINS TEI: Volatiles in the Subduction Factory

Mt. Hood, Oregon
September 28- October 1, 2009

Convened by: E. Hauri (, P. van Keken (, K. Fischer (, C. Manning (, and G. Gaetani (

The MARGINS Office is pleased to announce a 4-day Theoretical and Experimental Institute (TEI) focused on the behavior, mass-balance, and influence of volatiles in subduction zones. The scope of the meeting will encompass research topics within MARGINS SubFac (Subduction Factory), SEIZE (Seismogenic Zone Experiment) and RCL (Rupturing Continental Lithosphere) initiatives that are directly influenced by subduction-related fluids. This multidisciplinary meeting will bring together geochemists, geophysicists and modelers to critically examine and discuss the current state of our knowledge on the budgets of H2O, CO2, N, F, S, Cl, noble gases and hydrocarbons, and their implications for rheology, mantle dynamics and geophysical observables, in the two SubFac focus sites.
