Serpentinite in the Earth System Discussion Meeting

2018-11-19 - 08:00 - 2018-11-20
The Royal Society, London, 6-9 Carlton House Terrace, London, SW1Y 5AG


Scientific Discussion meeting organised by Dr Andrew McCaig, Professor Peter Kelemen, Professor Gretchen Früh-Green and Professor Damon Teagle

This meeting will bring together international scientists working on all aspects of serpentinisation, a process that may have been important for the origin of life on Earth and perhaps other planets. Serpentine is also a key carrier of water to depth in subduction zones, leading to intermediate depth earthquakes and the formation of island arc volcanoes.

The schedule of talks and speaker biographies are available below. Recorded audio of the presentations will be available on this page after the meeting has taken place.
