The mantle plume hypothesis predicts that a single age-progressive chain of volcanism will form as a tectonic plate passes over a comparatively fixed plume conduit.
Speaker: Dr Dave Munday (British Antarctic Survey)
Over geological time the placement of the Earth’s continents is altered by tectonic activity such that the geometry of the oceans also changes.
Speaker: Laurent Devriendt (U Wollongong)
The Earth’s past climate, sea level and ice volume have been reconstructed from the oxygen isotope ratio (18O/16O) of inorganic and biogenic carbon
Speaker: Paolo Sossi (Institut de Physique du Globe de Paris)
Moderately Volatile Elements (MVEs) in chondritic meteorites vary as a smooth function of their condensation temperatures, calculated for a gas of nebular composition (Tc
Speaker: Kate Holland (RSES)
The geochemistry of planktic foraminifer shells are among our most important proxies for reconstructing past ocean conditions and climate.
