GeoHP-2016 School

Together with the 3rd International Symposium "Advances in High-Pressure Research III: Towards Geodynamic Implications", we organized the GeoHP-2016 Summer School for Students and Young Scientists "High-pressure Techniques for Petrology and Geodynamics of Earth and Planetary Interiors".

GeoHP-2016 School Organizing Committee:

Prof. Andrey V. KORSAKOV
Prof. Konstantin D. LITASOV
Prof. Eiji OHTANI
