Metamorphic Petrology Research Group (MPRG) is composed of academic members
of the Institute of Petrology and Strutural Geology and their post-graduate students. Our aim is
to the study of textural and phase relations amongst minerals in metamorphic rocks.
For this purpose, we use different modern approaches, mainly description of the distribution
of elements in minerals and their behavior during metamorphosis, geospeedometry, thermodynamical modeling, etc. The results of our research should be the understanding of processes of evolution and exhumation of UHP the rocks and of geodynamics of the collision orogenic zones.
Main topics of the research
- Exhumation of UHP rocks in collision orogeny
- Eclogites and ultrahigh-pressure rocks of the Bohemian Massif
- Petrological aspects related to partial melting of granitic rocks in (U)HP conditions
- Mass balance and major and trace elements zoning in atoll garnet from eclogite facies rocks
- Record of metamorphic and metasomatic processes at the contact of the felsic and mafic rocks in HT conditions
- The Jurassic Meliata Zone (Western Carpathians)
- Basement xenolites in metagranite from Panshir Valley, Western Hindu Kush
