Ultrahigh-temperature, or UHT, metamorphism occurs where rocks of the continental crust are subjected to temperatures in excess of 900°C at pressures of 0.6-1.2 GPa, with peak-T

One of the important tools in determining the composition, structure and dynamism of the Earth is seismic tomography.
Speaker: Mr Chris Cline II (RSES)
The lateral variability of seismic properties within the upper mantle is broadly correlated with tectonic province, with diagnostic differences observed among mid-ocean ridge, s
Speaker: Ms Tanja Pejic (RSES)
The inner core, the very centre of our planet, has been there since the Earth started forming and growing, and yet we still do not know much about it.
