Mantle circulation in 4D

We have been successful with a consortium of partner institutions in being funded to study Earth’s mantle convection. The work will combine geophysical and geochemical observations with state-of-the-art convection simulations to understand the origin of upwellings inside Earth’s mantle.

The BBC covered the award of the grant here.

Our contribution to the project will be to make new measurements of Earth’s mantle temperature.
