The microstructures, textures, chemical and isotopic patterns in minerals and rocks are of key importance in reconstructing the evolution of geological systems and can now be studied at unprecedented scrutiny. A profound understanding of mineral reactions, deformation and recrystallization and their interplay is crucial for interpreting the increasingly accessible detail of the mineral and rock record. In particular, this requires that the classical equilibrium-thermodynamic analysis and modelling capabilities are successively complemented by descriptions of the kinetics underlying phase-, microstructural/textural- and (isotope)chemical change. We invite contributions addressing phenomena like magmatic crystallization, metamorphic mineral reactions, chemical and isotopic patterns from mineral growth and from diffusion-mediated re-equilibration, fluid-mediated mineral replacement, and fabric evolution from dynamic and static re-crystallization. We aim to integrate field related, experimental, and theoretical studies and stimulate scientific discussion across the pertinent fields of expertise.
