Testing the links between mass extinctions, volcanism and ocean chemistry

Why do some large volcanic eruptions create mass extinctions whilst others don’t? There is an emerging link between volcanically driven mass extinctions, such as those at the Permo-Triassic boundary and the end-Triassic, the development of anoxia, and low concentrations of sulfate in the oceans (He et al, 2020).

The Bottom-Up Ocean: Do marine sediments control ocean chemistry?

In this project you will use new and exciting experimental and analytical approaches to investigate how minerals in marine sediments help control the concentration and isotopic composition of rare earth elements (REE) in sediment porewaters and seawater. Read more

(STFC) THE ATMOSPHERIC EVOLUTION OF MARS

  Research Group: Isotope Geochemistry & Planetary Science
Project overview. Mars’ atmospheric evolution was marked by an early, dense CO. 2. -rich atmosphere giving sufficient greenhouse warming to enable liquid water at the surface, followed by atmospheric loss leaving a less dense atmosphere with cold, arid surface conditions. Read more

(STFC) HISTORY OF THE LUNAR SURFACE

  Research Group: Isotope Geochemistry & Planetary Science
Project overview. The Moon’s surface has been shaped by multiple impacts and so records the impact history of the inner solar system. Read more

(STFC) BIOAVAILABILITY OF ORGANICS FOR LIFE IN THE SOLAR SYSTEM

  Research Group: Isotope Geochemistry & Planetary Science
Project overview. Our understanding of planetary habitability is necessarily limited to our knowledge of life on Earth. A fundamental and as yet underexplored component of habitability is the availability of organic chemical energy for growth. Read more

(STFC) SOURCES OF SYSTEMIC ERROR IN LUMINOUS TRAJECTORY, DARK FLIGHT, AND ORBITAL CALCULATIONS FOR METEOROIDS

  Research Group: Isotope Geochemistry & Planetary Science
Project overview. The UK has several meteor observation camera networks set up to observe meteorite fall events. These networks were successfully used to predict the track of the recent Winchcombe UK meteorite event in February 2021. Read more

(STFC) BUILDING ROCKY PLANETS – CONSTRAINING MAGMA OCEAN BEHAVIOUR WITH EXPERIMENTAL PETROLOGY

  Research Group: Isotope Geochemistry & Planetary Science
This project will investigate the evolution of rocky planets, with a particular focus on investigating how evolving magma oceans produce the source regions from which different suites of planetary rock samples are ultimately derived. Read more
