Numerical Modelling of Subduction zones »

2pm 9 May 2019

Numerical models of subduction zones have advanced to the point where we can  consider how to move beyond the notion of simple conceptual model towards something that we could call a simulation. This requires a process of data assimilation to tune generic models so that they can address questions regardin a...

The effects of Mediterranean sea surface temperature evolution on the Mediterranean sea-level reconstruction »

1pm 8 May 2019

In 2014, Rohling et al. presented a new method of reconstructing sea level which utilised a planktic foraminiferal oxygen isotope (δ18O) stack from the Mediterranean to create a sea-level record spanning the last 5.3 million years. Prior to this, all continuous, millennially resolved sea-level...

The bulk elemental composition of the Earth and Sun with uncertainties: what can this comparison tell us about the composition of rocky exoplanets...

2pm 2 May 2019

We have performed the most detailed and up-to-date comparison of the bulk elemental composition of the Earth and Sun by comparing terrestrial rocks with meteorite and solar photospheric compositions.  This comparison yields a wealth of information about the way the Earth formed (Wang, Lineweaver...

Understanding the Eruptions of Submarine Large Igneous Provinces and Their Effects on the Environment »

2pm 17 April 2019

The Ontong Java Plateau (OJP), Shatsky Rise (SR), and the Kerguelen Plateau (KP) represent three Large Igneous Provinces (LIPs) located in oceanic settings. The basement lavas have been investigated through scientific ocean drilling and, in the case of the OJP, fieldwork on the emergent obducted portions of the...

Billion-year stability of cratonic edges controls location of global sediment-hosted metals »

2pm 11 April 2019

Sustainable development and transition to a clean-energy economy is placing ever-increasing demand on global supplies of base metals (copper, lead, zinc and nickel). Alarmingly, this demand is outstripping the present rate of discovery of new deposits, with significant shortfalls forecast in the coming decades....
