Volatiles in the Earth’s mantle provide unique information on the Earth. This project will undertake combined studies of nitrogen and noble gases in material derived from the mantle. The study will address fundamental issues concerning the early evolution of planets, and the chemical structure of Solar System.

The student will be involved with simultaneous isotopic analysis of nitrogen and noble gases in mantle-derived material by utilising a state-of-the-art noble gas analytical facility at ANU.
