Theme 1: ASHES TO ASHES - UNDERSTANDING EARTH PROCESSES
The physical and chemical nature of Earth's deep interior is key in controlling many of the processes that shape our planet: from mantle convection to volcanism, from plate tectonics to sedimentation. Dynamic processes are changing the earth constantly and give impulses for shaping the earth's surface or the evolution of organisms. This topic welcomes session contributions on all aspects which are important for our understanding of Earth processes.
