Fluids play a central role in the internal and external evolution of many solid bodies of the Solar System. They interact with planetary rocks and ices in terms of composition (magmatism, metamorphism, metasomatism, hydrothermalism, weathering) and shape (deformation, erosion, sedimentation). The third GeoPlaNet international thematic school, organised by the Laboratoire de Planétologie etGéodynamique (LPG, Nantes, France) in collaboration with its GeoPlaNet partners, will focus on observations and interpretations of spectacular and particularly instructive terrestrial analogues of these interactions.

The field school will be a traveling excursion on selected geological sites of planetary interest in the Pyrenees mountain range and at its borders, associated with analyses of satellite imagery and digital topography. Attendees involved in the geological interpretation of data acquired by planetary exploration instruments will thus gain field experience and knowledge on the processes, products and observable geological signatures of fluid-rock interactions in the Solar System.
