  Stability of minerals containing potassium and water in deeply subducted continents
  Prof S Foley
Application Deadline: 20 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

In large continental collision zones such as the Himalayas, continental crust may be pushed down to depths as great as 200–300km where the usual minerals of the continental crust are no longer stable.
  Experimental melting of the Earth’s mantle in the diamond stability field
  Prof S Foley
Application Deadline: 20 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Our knowledge of the melt compositions that can be produced in the Earth’s mantle is very good in the depth range up to 130km, but much more rudimentary at higher pressures because experiments have not yet been done following a close raster of realistic melting conditions.
  Metasomatic products of alkaline melt infiltration in the continental lithosphere
  Prof S Foley
Application Deadline: 20 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Alkaline incipient melts produced by melting at 100-200km depth beneath continents carry dissolved H2O and CO2 into the shallower mantle where they solidify, modifying the sources of later volcanic melts.
