The Sassy Scientist – The Cricetinae Model

The Sassy Scientist – The Cricetinae Model

Despite workshops and seminars and conference sessions and Zoom colloquia, of which Geraldine has attended many, one big question remains in geophysics:

What drives plate tectonics?

Dear Geraldine,

Slab pull? Ridge push? Mantle drag? Continental keels? Super plumes? Mantle wind? Expanding Earth? God?

Nope, there is only one explanation that truly fits the data and passes the common sense test: The Cricetinae Model.

Since this matter is now clearly solved. Please direct invitations for keynote presentations and medal awards here.

Yours truly,

The Sassy Scientist.

PS: This blog was written in place of the Sassy Scientist’s seminal lockdown paper. Lockdown has been going a long time, hasn’t it? La-la-la-laaa

I am currently employed at a first tier research institute where I am continuously working with the greatest minds to further our understanding of the solid Earth system. Whether it is mantle or lithosphere structure and dynamics, solid Earth rheology parameters, earthquake processes, integrating observations with model predictions or inversions: you have read a paper of mine. Even if you are working on a topic I haven’t mentioned here, I still know everything about it. Do you have any problems in your research career? I have already experienced them. Do you struggle with your work-life balance? Been there, done that. Nowadays, I have only one hobby: helping you out by answering the most poignant questions in geodynamics, research and life. I am waiting for you right here. Get inspired.
