Deformierter Granat-Porphyroblast in linear polarisiertem Licht

Tectonometamorphic processes

When studying tectonometamorphic processes, we try to constrain the physical conditions under which rocks were deformed as well as the time of their deformation. We are also interested in the geodynamic setting in which deformation and metamorphism took place.
