Session 7: High-pressure crystallography in earth and planetary science

High-pressure crystallography has played an essential role in the understanding of the mineralogy of the inaccessible deep interiors of Earth and other planets. New experimental and theoretical developments in high-pressure crystallography, not only for traditional powder and single crystal techniques but also for the lately developed multi-grain diffraction method, have advanced our knowledge on the complex mineralogical compositions of Earth and rocky planets, as well as their chemical evolution and internal dynamics. This session focuses on new developments in the high-pressure crystallography relevant to the study of Earth's and planetary interiors. We invite contributions on the topics including phase stability, crystal structure, elasticity and equation of state, crystal chemistry, transport and rheological properties, and chemical reactions at relevant conditions found in planetary interiors.
