  Experimental melting of hydrous pyroxenite: reactions between crust and mantle in subduction zones
  Prof S Foley
Application Deadline: 31 July 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Hydrous pyroxenite is believed to be a common reaction product produced by the interaction of subducted materials with peridotite in the mantle wedge above subducting slabs.
  Experimental melting of the Earth’s mantle in reduced conditions
  Prof S Foley
Application Deadline: 31 July 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Melting of mantle peridotite has been thoroughly studied with high-pressure experiments with and without the volatile components H2O and CO2.
  The petrological and geochemical behaviour of nitrogen during subduction
  Prof S Foley
Application Deadline: 31 July 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Although nitrogen is well known as the most abundant gas species in the atmosphere, more than half the Earth’s nitrogen is sequestered in the solid Earth.
  The potential of olivine and spinel as indicators of magma source regions
  Prof S Foley
Application Deadline: 31 July 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Minor and trace elements in olivine phenocrysts have been used recently as tracers to identify the mineral assemblages present in source regions of the magmas.
  Transport of elements in the deep continental crust
  Prof S Foley
Application Deadline: 31 July 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

This project entails an analytical and experimental investigation of trace element distribution between minerals, fluids and melts at depths of 20-50km in the Earth.
