Post-conference field trips (A & B) to Southern and Central Adamello:

Both trips (Group A and B) visit similar areas, with slightly different focuses. Both groups will walk in Alpine terrains at altitudes between 1800 and 2600 m and with climbs of up to 800 m elevation difference. Accommodation is in mountain huts with elementary infrastructure (bedrooms for 6-10 persons; half-board and lunch bags).

Please indicate your preference for Group A or B. If the number of interested people exceeds the capacities of one of the groups your name will be put on the list of the alternative trip. Groups will be filled according to registration.

Group A (max 40 participants): Southern Adamello (3 days area of Lago della Vacca – Monte Frerone – Cornone di Blumone; accommodation: Rifugio Tita Secchi) – Central Adamello (1 day in Val di Daone – Forcel Rosso)

Group B (max. 26 participants): Central Adamello (2 days in Val di Saviore – Forcel Rosso – Val di Daone; accommodation: Rifugio Lissone) – Southern Adamello (2 days around Lago della Vacca – Monte Frerone – Cornone di Blumone; accommodation: Rifugio Tita Secchi)

Southern Adamello:

Key topics:

Border geometries and pre-intrusive configuration, syn-intrusive deformation of host and early intrusive rocks, time scales and modes of magma emplacement (mafic, intermediate and acidic bodies, mingling features, cumulate formation), dyke patterns.

Field-trip leaders: Peter Ulmer (ETHZ), Othmar Müntener (UNIL), Jon Blundy (Bristol), Urs Schaltegger (UNIGE)

Central Adamello:

Key topics:

Border geometries and pre-intrusive configuration, metamorphism, fluid flow and thermal evolution of contact aureoles, contact areas and chronology of multiple northern Re di Castello and Adamello intrusions.

Field-trip leaders: Lukas Baumgartner (UNIL),  Peter Brack (ETHZ), David Flöss (UNIL)
