Grain-Scale Deformation Processes, Microstructures, and Teaching the Processes of Formation of Structures

What do we want to accomplish?

The general charge to all working groups is:

This working group will focus on resources and activities that help students learn about the relatively small number of distinct grain-scale deformation processes, the range of crustal conditions over which each tends to be dominant, the characteristic microstructures produced by each, and the flow law (rheology) associated with each. In particular we will focus on the information that can be extracted from preserved microstructures, and how grain-scale deformation processes act to form larger scale structures.
