New Insights into Subduction-Zone Fluids


Craig Manning
University of California, Los Angeles

Craig Manning is one of the world leaders in understanding what happens to aqueous and CO2-rich fluids at high pressures and temperatures. His approaches have focused on laboratory experiments of simple systems, and with them, he has illuminated complex geochemical behavior in subduction zones and the lower crust. His interests include metamorphic petrology; experimental petrology; high-pressure aqueous geochemistry; mid-ocean ridge hydrothermal systems; Cenozoic hydrothermal systems of western North America.
