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


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.




Characteristic of MSCA-ITN research and training is the strong interaction between projects and extensive opportunities for secondments by network partners. The network offers a comprehensive program of scientific and skills training opportunities, fieldwork and a summer school on location in the Pyrenees.
