Sediment driven convection below river plumes: implications to deposition patterns in lakes and estuaries »

2pm 19 July 2019

In this talk I will describe how the process of convective sedimentation could greatly increase vertically settling rates, and how this process determines that length and time-scales over which deposition can occur.

LGM-Holocene environmental change in SE Asia »

12pm 10 July 2019

The lowland tropics of Wallacea in south-east Asia represent some of the most diverse, biogeographically significant forests globally. Long-term ecological data for this region are however scarce, making it difficult to predict vegetation response to future drivers of change.

Rheological structure of plate boundary strike-slip faults »

2pm 30 May 2019

The boundaries of tectonic plates cover ~15% of Earth’s surface and constitute areas of significant natural hazards, including earthquakes. As ~40% of Earth’s population lives along plate boundaries, it is critical to understand what aspects of lithospheric deformation control earthquakes in interplate settings....

Challenges with identifying crustal assimilants at an intermediate-composition arc volcano »

1.30pm 24 May 2019

A central objective of petrogenetic studies is to determine the proportions of crystallised magma to assimilated country-rock. In assimilation-fractional crystallisation (AFC) calculations, this is represented by the “r-value”. To calculate assimilation/crystallisation proportions, it is necessary to know the...

The Significance of Serpentine »

2pm 23 May 2019

The mineral serpentine is the result of low-grade metamorphic reactions between ultramafic rocks and water. Given that the rocky envelopes of the terrestrial planets and moons are mainly ultramafic, and water is a common molecule, especially on the outside of these bodies, serpentine assumes a position of...
