International conference "Large igneous provinces, mantle plumes and metallogeny in the earth’s history"

1 - 8 september 2015 Irkutsk-Listvyanka, Russia


The conference is focused on the following topics:


  1. Evolution of plume magmatism and related large igneous provinces (LIPs) in the Earth’s history.
  2. Age intervals, duration and structure of LIPs.
  3. Deep mantle sources and role of plumes in the LIP formation.
  4. Deep mantle geodynamics, models of mantle plumes and problems of plume-lithosphere and mantle-core interaction in the Earth’s history.
  5. The role of plumes in the subcontinental lithospheric mantle formation and modification.
  6. Specific metallogeny of LIPs as variation of size and composition.
  7. Ore-magmatic systems of LIPs, their fluid regime and formation factors, prediction and searching criteria for huge and unique mineral deposits.
  8. Effects of LIPs on the environment, climate change and natural disasters.
