Marco Scambelluri is Professor of Petrology at the University of Genova. Research activity in metamorphic petrology, the genesis of metamorphic fluids, fluid/rock interactions and petrology of eclogite-facies rocks. Research is focussed on high- (HP) and ultrahigh-pressure (UHP) metamorphism of oceanic and continental lithosphere from the Alps, the Betic Cordillera (South-Eastern Spain), Dabie-Shan and Sulu (China), the Caledonides of Western Norway. The approach is field-based and process-oriented, aimed at understanding the behaviour of rocks and fluids in subduction environments.
– Tectonics and petrology of of HP and UHP rocks.
– The genesis and composition of subduction-zone fluids, the role of fluids in mass transfer, mantle metasomatism and the genesis of magmas at convergent plate margins.
