Solid Earth

  • Petrology & Geochemistry

    Our faculty combine field and experimental work, and theory to study a wide range of planetary processes, including the physicochemical causes and timing of volcanic eruptions, the evolution of base and precious metal deposits, the connection between the mantle and the volcanic arc in subduction zones, mantle mineralogy, and the dynamics of core-mantle interaction.
