Workshop - 2 days
Fundamentals of Fluid Inclusions
|Date||Sunday 08 to Monday 09 November 2020|
|Location||James Cook University, Townsville Campus|
|Time||9 am - 5 pm|
|Course Leaders||Dr Jan Huizenga and Assoc. Prof. Carl Spandler|
|Students||FREE - only 10 places available|
The short course will include the fundamentals of fluid inclusion studies and the chemical analysis of single fluid inclusions using laser-ablation ICP-MS.
The fundamentals section will focus on the practical aspects of fluid inclusion studies (e.g., sample selection, sample preparation), fluid inclusion petrography (i.e. principle of fluid inclusion assemblages), phase diagrams of single and multi-component systems, use of the heating-freezing stage and micothermometry, data collection, presentation and evaluation, and the calculation of fluid compositions and isochores.
The second part of the course will examine the procedures and methods for chemical analysis of individual fluid inclusions by laser ablation ICP-MS, including aspects sample preparation requirements, instrument setup and operation, analysis protocols, data quantification and processing and advantages and limitations of the technique.
This workshop requires minimum number of registrants to proceed. Please see cancellation policy for refund details.
