Ultrafast Metamorphic Reactions with Xu Chu
Nov 16th, 2020 by Earth News Interviews
We're used to thinking of geologic phenomena as events that take millions of years. Think mountain building, subduction, or even the rock and carbon cycles. In this episode, we talk with Assistant Professor Xu Chu about a new discovery in metamorphic petrology: ultra-fast fluid-rock interactions and what they mean for earth system processes through geologic time.
Primary Readings Discussed:
Instantaneous rock transformations in the deep crust driven by reactive fluid flow
