IEC-11 Special Issue

The 11th IEC was held in 2015 near Rio San Juan on the Northern Coast of the Dominican Republic and organized by Hans-Peter Schertl and Walter V. Maresch from the Ruhr-University Bochum, Germany.

A special issue of the “European Journal of Mineralogy” dedicated to that meeting has now been published (December 2016; Vol. 28, No. 6; guest editors: H.-P. Schertl, W.V. Maresch, W.C. McClelland, C.G. Mattinson). It contains the following papers:

    EITARO SATO, TAKAO HIRAJIMA, KENTA YOSHIDA, KENICHIRO KAMIMURA and YOSHIKAZU FUJIMOTO

  2. Pressure–temperature estimates of the blueschists from the Kopina Mt., northern Bohemian Massif, Poland – constraints on subduction of the Saxothuringian continental margin
    JAROSŁAW MAJKA, STANISŁAW MAZUR, KAROLINA KOŚMIŃSKA, KRZYSZTOF DUDEK and IWONA KLONOWSKA

  3. Metamorphic evolution of blueschists, greenschists, and metagreywackes in the Cretaceous Mt. Hibernia Complex (SE Jamaica)
