Research Activity

Externally funded projects

Mantle Volatiles: Contemporary Processes, Reservoirs And Fluxes (Project Student)

RoleStart dateEnd dateFunding source
Co-investigator01/Oct/201530/Sep/2019NERC (Natural Environment Research Council)
This project is Funded studentship tied to the large NERC consortium grant titled Mantle Volatiles: Contemporary Processes, Reservoirs and Fluxes. Ginevra Chelli is studying “The role of degassing on the distribution of >60 elements during crustal processes and eruption of basaltic melts”

Mantle volatiles: contemporary processes, reservoirs and fluxes

RoleStart dateEnd dateFunding source
Co-investigator01/Sep/201431/Aug/2019NERC (Natural Environment Research Council)
This project seeks to significantly advance our understanding of how the terrestrial mantle acts as both a source and sink for the major exosphere (Ocean and Atmosphere) volatiles water, carbon, sulphur and halogens; volatiles which over Earth history have had a profound effect on the ability of the planet’s surface to support life. The OU contribution is in two work packages on the sulfur cycle and noble gases where we are project partners
