Pre-EGU field trip to the the Bohemian Massif – orogenic root domains

An interesting pre-EGU field trip will be organised by colleagues from the University of Vienna, focussing on some structural interesting outcrops near Vienna. Here is the announcement from Anna Rogowitz:

The trip aims to provide a brief outlook on the processes occurring in orogenic root domains on the example of the Bohemian Massif in Austria. Special focus will be given to deformation structures and the influence of partial melting on deformation localization. The excellent exposures in the Bohemian Massif gives a great opportunity to study the interplay between chemical changes and deformation processes in the lower crust. Additionally the high amount of migmatisation in some areas of the Moldanubian domain allows for studying the influence of melt on deformation processes as well as the composition of the host rock on melt formation and strain partitioning between rocks of different composition and rheology.

The field trip is especially addressed to early career scientists (ECS) taking part at the EGU general assembly in order to give them the opportunity to, not only discuss tectonic and metamorphic processes in the field, but also to meet new people and build up a network for the conference.
Of course non ECS are welcome too. The number of participants is limited to 18.

Event Date

22 April 8:30 till 23 April 5:00 pm


The costs will be maximal 50 Euro for accommodation plus expenses for food and drinks (but might be reduced later on). Vehicles will be sponsored by the Department of Geodynamics and Sedimentology (University of Vienna).


In case you’re interested in joining us on this field trip or have any further questions please don’t hesitate to contact me (

All the best,

Anna Rogowitz
Bernhard Grasemann
Petr Jeřábek and
Luca Menegon

Thanks Anna et al. for organising the trip!
