Widespread alkaline and calc-alkaline magmatic episodes shaped the Mediterranean area for at least 300 Ma, from Permian to recent times. These are recognizable through effusive and intrusive events showing large geochronological, geochemical, petrological, and isotopic variabilities. Several tectono-magmatic models have been proposed to explain the nature and evolution of these different magmatic events, their variability, and their link to the geodynamics of the western Tethys. Nonetheless, while some of these models are constantly improved, others are being challenged by new observations. The session aims to bring together scientists focussing on the Permian to Quaternary alkaline and calc-alkaline magmatism in the Mediterranean area to improve our understanding of this topic. We encourage contributions using multi-disciplinary and innovative methodologies, ranging from fieldwork, thermochronology, geochemistry, geochronology, petrology, vulcanology, experimental approaches, analogue, and numerical modeling.
