Our scientists are studying igneous rocks and magmatic processes to learn more about Earth's interior.
Our research focuses on:
We are studying magmatism and geodynamic processes in one of the world's most interesting and complex active subduction zones.
Learn about our research into carbonatite magmas and associated large mineral deposits.
Igneous petrologist and volcanologist working on arc magmatism and active volcanoes.
The crust is the outermost layer of the earth, and is chemically different from the layer beneath, the mantle. The crust can be either continental or oceanic.
A tectonic plate boundary where one oceanic plate moves beneath another plate. Often associated with volcanoes, earthquakes and mountain building.
