“Compositional micro-mapping using XMapTools”

EMU-SFMC workshop

8-10 June 2015 – Inst. of Earth and Environment Science, University of Potsdam

Deadline for pre-registration: February 28th, 2015

This workshop is chiefly designed as an XMapTools beginner course, where participants will be introduced to the software and will learn to use it routinely. In addition, following up the young series of “Petrochronology” meetings, this workshop is thought to serve as an XMapTools-user meeting to enhance feedback from users to developers, share experience and ideas concerning specific uses of XMapTools, and communicate about recent and upcoming developments.

The workshop will be divided into three parts:

  • General lectures on “Micro-mapping, XMapTools and applications in petrology” by invited speakers (0.5 day)
  • Practical course — “XMapTools: From its development to its routine use” (2 days)
  • Session talks where the participants can present their applications (0.5 day)
