This collection of papers presents recent advances in the study of deformation mechanisms and rheology and their applications to tectonics. Many of the contributions exploit new petrofabric techniques, particularly electron backscatter diffraction, to help understand evolution of rock microstructure and mechanical properties.

Deformation mechanisms is commonly characterized as brittle, ductile and brittle-ductile. The driving mechanism responsible is a subject of interplay between internal (e.g composition, grain size and lattice-preferred orientation) and external (e.g temperature and fluid pressure) factors. These mechanisms produce a range of micro-structures studied in rocks to constrain the conditions. Deformation Mechanisms, Rheology and Tectonics Programme and Abstracts International Conference, Leuven 1 Preface Dear colleagues, We are very pleased to welcome you to Leuven for the 19th International Conference on Deformation mechanisms, Rheology and hope. The volume is prefaced by an excellent review by the editors on the state of research which incorporates the submitted papers and an extensive bibliography. Twenty-two papers are grouped into four contextual sections--the effect of fluids, microstructures and textures, deformation mechanisms and rheology and tectonics.
