Exploring new frontiers in fluids processes in subduction zones
Exploring new frontiers in fluids processes in subduction zones
Editor(s): N. Malaspina, S. Tumiati, C. Sanchez-Valle, and J. H. Davies

This special issue arose from the EGU Galileo conference "Exploring new frontiers in fluids processes in subduction zones", held from 24 to 29 June 2018 in Leibnitz (Austria). This was the first multidisciplinary conference dedicated to understanding fluid-mediated processes in subduction zones, comprising the study of mass transfer and recycling in deep settings and the quantitative understanding of the role of fluids on large-scale mass exchange between Earth's reservoirs.

We welcome research articles and/or frontiers papers from the conference attendees and from any other contributor whose research embraces one of the main topics covered by the conference:

  • experimental and theoretical studies of fluid properties
  • natural studies of fluid–rock interaction
  • thermodynamic modelling of fluid–rock interactions
  • geodynamic modelling and the role of fluids in subduction dynamics.
