Understanding carbon dioxide emissions from Iceland: carbon budgets and their use for forecasting changes in volcanic behaviour

Carbon dioxide exsolves from magmas deep within the Earth. Changes in carbon dioxide emissions monitored at the surface may be indicative of changes deep beneath volcanic systems; and could provide clues to changes in volcanic activity. Read more

Mud Volcanism on the Red Planet, Mars

Supervisors. Dr Thomas Jones (primary supervisor). Professor Lionel Wilson (secondary supervisor). Project Description. Mud volcanism – the surface eruption of sediment-water mixtures – is evident across several planetary bodies. Read more

Understanding geothermal and volcanic systems using seismic recordings

Summary. Study for a PhD in geophysics and geothermal at Leeds, investigating how both volcanological and engineered geothermal systems behave using seismic waves and large datasets. Read more

NERC GW4+ DTP Studentship: What controls recurrent growth & collapse cycles of large oceanic volcanoes – the case of Tope de Coroa, Cape Verde

Project Background. Prominent ocean island volcanoes often experience recurrent cycles of vigorous volcanic growth followed by catastrophic gravitational collapse, at the scale of a few hundreds of thousands of years, making them some of the most hazardous geological entities in our ocean basins.

NERC GW4+ DTP Studentship: Reconstructing early arc magmatism in Panama to constrain subduction initiation along oceanic plateaus

Project Summary. The project aims to improve our understanding of subduction initiation and plate tectonics by studying volcanic sequences recently discovered along the margin of the Caribbean oceanic plateau in Panama and developing a new integrative methodological approach to date altered mafic igneous rocks.
