Planetary volcanoes: investigating patterns in volcanic dome behaviour on Mars and Earth

This exciting project aims to investigate volcanic dome behaviour on Mars and Earth using spacecraft data collected over the last decade alongside available surface data from Earth and from Martian surface missions. Read more

Pinatubo apatite: a proxy for pre-eruptive volcanic gas emissions?

Project Highlights. A unique petrological perspective gained from looking inside an active volcano. Contribute to understanding one of the principal controls on volcanic eruptions and volcanic hazard assessment. Read more

Radar characterisation of volcanic plumes

Explosive eruptions can generate volcanic ash plumes that present a global hazard, and have led to welldocumented multi-billion dollar disruptions to international air transport. Read more

Understanding eruption timing based on the mechanical damage accumulated from repetitive dyke intrusions in volcanic materials

Project Description. It is now well accepted that even when stressed to levels significantly below their theoretical elastic (non-linear) limits rocks can accumulate damage that reduces the strength/stiffness of the material, and this effect is cumulative. Read more

The impact of continental break-up on the global carbon cycle

Project Rationale. The rupture of continents and the formation of new ocean basins are perhaps the most dramatic phenomena in global tectonics but these processes are rarely shown in text book cartoons of the plate tectonic and biogeochemical cycles (e.g., Kelemen & Manning, 2015). Read more

What does the recent volcanic activity at La Palma, Canary Islands tell us about the composition of the mantle source of lavas?

In this study we will use the Canary Islands archipelago as a natural laboratory to examine the effects on melt composition as a passive continental margin is approached, transitioning from underlying lithosphere that is dominantly oceanic to increasingly continental in its nature. Read more
