Full waveform seismic processing for mineral exploration

The search for very deep deposits is becoming more and more important in mineral exploration. Due to the absence of surface indicators and the prohibitive cost of deep drilling, indirect methods, such as geophysical surveys, are essential in such context. Read more

Exploring reactions under stress in the mantle using mineral analogues

Convection in the Earth’s mantle controls Earth evolution. Different mineral assemblages occur at different depths in the mantle and variations over short distances are detectable as seismic discontinuities, thus providing key information on mantle conditions. Read more

Testing key assumptions in thermochronology: the case of Ar isotopes in muscovite

The University of Geneva, Switzerland has an extremely strong record in Isotope Geoscience, and is supported by in-house world class analytical facilities, including access to the modern and complementary laboratories at the University of Lausanne, which is located 50km away. Read more

Use of Fungi as a Means of Producing Concrete-Like Construction Materials

Concrete is one of the World’s most ubiquitous materials. It has achieved this through its versatility, durability and low cost. However, the manufacture of a key ingredient - Portland cement – contributes 4% of anthropogenic CO2 emissions. Read more

Control of Parathyroid Hormone Secretion

The regulation of parathyroid hormone (PTH) secretion is of fundamental importance for calcium homeostasis and in mineral conditions affecting bone and the kidneys. Read more

Project at Cranfield University: Carbon sequestration in agricultural soils through silicate weathering

One of the most promising ‘geo-engineering’ methods to mitigate climate change is to capture CO. 2. from the air and react it with silicate rocks to form carbonate rocks, so permanently sequestering the CO. Read more
