Fluids driving the evolution of the continental crust: influence of pathway networks, fluxes, and time scales

FluidNET is a Marie Skłodowska-Curie ITN project - started January 1st 2021

Pathways of fluids 
Fluids, and in particular water, next to the solid components represent a key component in the Earth continental crust because water can act as a solvent, a catalyst enhancing chemical reactions, a transport medium for mass transport, and it controls the strength of rocks. FluidNET’s approach will focus on tracking down the sources and pathways of fluids in the crust and will attempt to measure the timescales over which fluids are mobile in the crust.

Marie Skłodowska-Curie-Actions

The Marie Skłodowska-Curie actions support researchers at all stages of their careers, regardless of age and nationality. Researchers working across all disciplines are eligible for funding. The MSCA also support cooperation between industry and academia and innovative training to enhance employability and career development.
