G&G team studying turbulence and sediment dynamics are first to use the Fast Flow Facility at HR Wallingford

Members of the G&G group (coastal processes research theme) have recently had the privilege to be the first external users of the new HR Wallingford¬†Fast Flow Facility (FFF). The FFF is a unique facility that allows studying wave-current-sediment interactions at a large scale. This collaboration came to support the work undertaken by postgraduate researcher Hachem… Read More G&G team studying turbulence and sediment dynamics are first to use the Fast Flow Facility at HR Wallingford

Thermal models of dyke intrusion during development of continent‚Äďocean transition

Kat Daniels from Cambridge University along with a team of scientists including Derek Keir¬†from G&G, published a paper in EPSL highlighting the influence of dyke intrusion on heating the surrounding crust in extensional tectonic settings. They used numerical modelling to show that if intrusions repeatedly focus at the same location for just a few million… Read More Thermal models of dyke intrusion during development of continent‚Äďocean transition

Magma fluxes at Soufrière Hills Volcano, Montserrat

Catherine Annen from Bristol University, ¬†with Tim Minshull and former PhD student Michele Paulatto from G&G, have published a paper in the Journal of Petrology in which they estimate on different timescales the rate that magma flows into the magma storage region beneath the active Soufriere Hills Volcano. ¬†They use computer models of magma chamber… Read More Magma fluxes at Soufri√®re Hills Volcano, Montserrat
