    Outstanding thesis presentation by Melinda Bahruth

    Congratulations to Melinda Bahruth on her successful thesis defense! Melinda presented her work on “Basaltic Breccia Constraints on the Shallow Rheology of the Gofar Transform Fault”. Despite the early hour on Friday, the Zoom audience was packed and overflow seating was needed for the in-person crowd in Penny Hall.

    Postdoc Nadine Grambling joins the lab

    Nadine Grambling has joined the Mantle Processes group as a postdoctoral scholar! She will be studying olivine fabric development by combining rock deformation experiments with analysis of samples from the Talkeetna Intraoceanic Arc in Alaska. Her work is supported by NSF project EAR-2113408 and is a collaboration with Ningli Zhao (Carnegie Institution) and Greg Hirth […]

    Article published on oceanic transform faults

    An article on the role of seawater infiltration for oceanic transform fault seismicity has been published in the latest issue of Nature Geoscience. Oceanic transform faults are a major category of plate-bounding faults that cross-cut the mid-ocean ridge system. This study by Arjun Kohli, Monica Wolfson-Schwehr, Cecile Prigent, and Jessica Warren incorporates seawater hydration into […]

  • Former lab member Suzanne Birner has published an open access paper titled “Melt addition to mid-ocean ridge peridotites increases spinel Cr# with no significant effect on recorded oxygen fugacity“. In this paper, we report geochemical data, petrographic observations, and oxygen fugacity estimates for Southwest Indian Ridge peridotites. We show that low to moderate degrees of […]
