Chemical analysis data derived from NERC grant NE/I025573/1, When on Earth did modern plate tectonics begin?
Earth is a dynamic planet, for the simple reason that it is still cooling down from the heat of accretion and subsequent decay of radioactive elements. The main mechanism by which it loses h ...

How does the Earth's crust grow at divergent plate boundaries? A unique opportunity in Afar, Ethiopia
The African continent is slowly splitting apart along the East African rift valley, a 3000 km-long series of deep basins and flanking mountain ranges. This process may eventually lead to the ...

The long term denudation chronology of the East Greenland margin (north of 72 degrees) : the role of the margin as an analogue for exploration beyond the North Sea
On plate reconstructions, the east Greenland margin lies adjacent to a little explored yet potentially major oil province in the north Atlantic. Exhumed giant to supergiant hydrocarbon traps ...

Using cosmogenic isotopes to estimate rates of fault growth
To examine how fault growth, earthquake recurrence and climate change combine to create the active geomorphology in central Otago (New Zealand). Geomorphological features related to active f ...
