Shock metamorphism

First Announcement: Workshop on “Shock metamorphism in terrestrial and extra-terrestrial rocks”
Tentative dates:ย June 24 – July 2, 2017
Location: Curtin University, Perth, Western Australia

Purpose and Scope

We invite researchers of all backgrounds who share a common interest in studying shock effects in geologic media and impact-related processes in the solar system. This multi-disciplinary workshop is aimed at bringing together different research aspects, from the state-of-the-art laboratory methodologies in terrestrial and extra-terrestrial rock, mineral and meteorite sample analysis, to numerical modelling and laboratory experiments of shock-wave progression in geologic and planetary analogue materials.

Topical sessions include:

– Terrestrial shocked rocks
– Meteorites
– Numerical impact modelling
– Laboratory impact experiments
