Graphical expression of the CO2 densimeter equations related to the CO2 Raman spectrum obtained from the fluid inclusions.

Micro - raman and fluid inclusion applications in petrology and sedimentology

Applicazioni micro-raman e delle inclusioni fluide in campo petrologico e sedimentologico



ERC Sectors

PE10_10 - Mineralogy, petrology, igneous petrology, metamorphic petrology


This research couples micro-Raman and fluid inclusion analyses to characterize petrological and sedimentary processes occurring at the micro- and nano-scale or to define the equations that correlate Raman spectra from a sample with its chemical-physical features.
