RheoMan: a five-year, ERC-funded (Advanced Grant), project to model the rheology of the Earth's mantle

Sep 11, 2016 EMC 2016 in Rimini General

On September 11-15, 2016, the 2nd European Mineralogical Conference will be held in Rimini, organized by our colleagues from the Società Italiana di Mineralogia e Petrologia (SIMP), Giuseppe Cruciani (University of Ferrara) and Bernardo Cesare (University of Padova).

The RheoMan team will be present and give several oral and poster presentattions
