Join in our Mag-netZ !

For better or for worse, online seminars have stealthily become part of our routine. This week, Daniele Thallner from the University of Florida, “attracts” our attention to a seminar series on geomagnetism and geodynamo modeling — Mag-netZ! The 2022 season of the MagNetZ seminar series is live! The MagNetZ (Magnetic NetworkZ) online seminar series was started in early 2020 to serve as ...[Read More]

Why do some slabs stagnate?

Why do some slabs stagnate?

Mechanisms for stab stagnation are essential for understanding the mantle circulation patterns. This week, Diandian Peng, a graduate student from University of Illinois explores how dynamic pressure gradients can pull the slabs sideways stagnating them at the Mantle Transition Zone. Seismic imaging provides critical constraints on the structure and evolution of subducted slabs. Numerous tomographi ...[Read More]

Paleogeography and the Northern Hemisphere Oceanic Gateways

Paleogeography and the Northern Hemisphere Oceanic Gateways

Eivind Straume a Postdoctoral fellow at the Department of Geological Sciences within the Jackson School of Geosciences explores how the opening and closing ocean gateways have influenced the Earth’s climate in the past.   Changes in Earth’s geography due to tectonic plate motions and mantle convection influence climate evolution on geological timescales. Over millions of years, continen ...[Read More]
