This session invites contributions addressing all aspects of magma origin and evolution in the Earth mantle and crust through petrological, geochemical and experimental investigations of volcanic rocks. Particularly welcome are results obtained by using non-traditional approaches such as time-series study of volcanic rocks (lavas or tephras), development and application of new microelement and isotope proxies to decipher deep magmatic processes, results from melt and fluid inclusion studies as well as experimental simulation of deep magmatic systems.
