    Invited review article on global abyssal peridotites

    This review article presents a global compilation of abyssal peridotite compositions, demonstrating that their compositions reflect a combination of melting, melt–rock interaction and source heterogeneity. This article is open access. Warren, J.M., 2016. Global variations in abyssal peridotite compositions, Lithos, 248-251, 193-219, doi:10.1016/j.lithos.2015.12.023.

  • Megan D’Errico’s paper on the geochemistry of peridotites from the Arctic Ocean has been published in Geochimica et Cosmochimica Acta. Based on modeling of peridotite compositions, we show that the presence of refractory harzburgites and thin overlying oceanic crust are best explained by low degrees of melting of a previously melted, heterogeneous mantle. D’Errico, M.E., J.M. Warren and M. […]

    Fieldwork in the Josephine Peridotite

    We returned to the Josephine Peridotite for more sampling of mantle shear zones. In addition to graduate students Nik Deems and Katie Kumamoto, Stanford undergraduate EKela Autry joined us to get data for her summer project. We were also joined by Eric Mittelstaedt and Kate Kaminski from the University of Idaho for Kate’s project on helium in the […]

    Field class in the Trinity Ophiolite

    This September we returned to the Trinity Ophiolite in Northern California for a Stanford field class (GES 190: Advanced Field Methods). Read the student blog for the class here. We were joined by lab descendent Philomena Gan from Oxford University, who is a student with former lab member Lars Hansen.

    Lab outing to the exploratorium

    To see out the academic year, we took a lab trip to the Exploratorium in SF. While simulated fog didn’t hold much appeal, shadow images, kaleidoscopes, geysers, heat sensors and cow eyeballs provided wholesome scientific diversion from pressing questions about mantle processes.
