The many faces of chlorite
This session focuses on the many geological occurrences of chlorite: from soils to detrital sediments, to sedimentary and diagenetic systems, to hydrothermal alterations and to low- and medium-grade metamorphic rocks, chlorite is everywhere. It forms as pure grains, or as interlayers with phyllosilicates such as smectite, serpentine, and vermiculite. The aim of this session is to bring together those with an interest in chlorite in any of its many forms, to present data from a wide variety of different analytical techniques, and to promote awareness of the complexity of chlorite and above all the potential for it to provide new and useful information on many geologic processes from the surface of the earth to deep in the crust.
