Summary of thesis This project targets to quantify the phase relations and modal variations of cm-scale layering along intra-plutonic contacts, using field, analytical and theoretical data, giving us insight in the pulsed nature of magma flow. Furthermore, ultramafic cores of orbes give us insight into lower crust formation and recycling processes.
