Workshop (september 16th)

"Instrumental techniques applied to Mineralogy and Geochemistry"


This workshop is arranged with the aim of updating the knowledge of young and also "senior" researchers. The meeting to be held in Zaragoza, on September 2008, will feature the state of knowledge on some techniques widely used in Mineralogy and Petrology.

The Workshop will include an internationally well-known group of specialists in some tecniques like electron microscopy, isotope geology, RAMAN, IR, XAS, XANES, fluid inclusions, etc.

Workshop Programme will be released in the Second Circular.
