Dear Colleagues,
We would like to draw your attention to the following session on 
Interdisciplinary Perspectives on Mantle Melting and Volcanism (DI009 
<https://agu.confex.com/agu/fm17/preliminaryview.cgi/Session23792>) at 
the upcoming AGU Fall Meeting 2017.

Abstracts are due by Wednesday, August 2. Session details are included 

We look forward to seeing you in New Orleans this December,

Juliane Dannberg, Zach Eilon, Jin Liu and Ananya Mallik

*DI009: Interdisciplinary Perspectives on Mantle Melting and Volcanism 
*(ID #23792)
Melting within the Earth, across a range of depths, has fundamental 
consequences for planetary dynamics and evolution. Yet, questions 
regarding source composition, melt migration and distribution, in situ 
melt fraction, and magma storage and evolution remain unanswered. We 
invite contributions from studies of asthenosphere/lithosphere melting 
in various tectonic environments (e.g., mid-ocean ridges, subduction 
zones, hotspots), as well as deep planetary melting (e.g., transition 
zone, magma ocean). Topics covered by this session include: (1) magmatic 
processes in the presence of volatiles and heterogeneous rock 
assemblages, (2) melt migration and melt-rock interaction, (3) melting 
and solidification at the core-mantle boundary, (4) imaging melt within 
the Earth through seismic or magnetotelluric approaches, (5) plume vs. 
non-plume origin of intraplate volcanism, and (6) magmatic processes and 
the evolution of magmas in the early Earth. We solicit research that 
combines the strengths of geochemistry, petrology, geology, geodynamics, 
geophysics, and mineral physics.

Invited Presenters:
Tobias Keller (Stanford University) and Esteban Gazel (Virginia Tech)
