CVD Anvil

This image is of a diamond anvil used in high pressure deformation experiments. This particular diamond was created using the chemical vapor deposition (CVD) method. These artificial diamonds have ...

Poster - New Research Directions in High-Pressure Mineral Physics

Large image showing recent research in mineral physics and advances in technology. Features detailed diagrams of various equipment and a short explanation of mineral physics' goals.

Water in the Mantle

This schematic shows a cross-section of the planet and how water can migrate through the deep interior of the Earth. Blue arrows indicate a movement of water downward, yellow arrows indicated ...

High-Pressure Instrumentation

This diagram associates parts of the Earth's interior with particular kinds of experimental apparatus which can recreate it's pressure and temperature conditions.

Geochemistry of the Solid Earth I: The Mantle and Core

This site is a chapter from a book on geochemistry by Dr. W. M. White that is used in a geochemistry course at Cornell University. The 39-page PDF document discusses the composition and evolution of ...

Kirscher's Earth Stucture

Athanasius Kircher's 1665 conception of the Earth's interior.

Current and Future Directions in High-Pressure Mineral Physics

The cover of the report "Current and Future Directions in High-Pressure Mineral Physics," showing the layers of the Earth and high-pressure equipment.

The Earth's Mantle

This illustration from Kellog, Hader, and van der Hilst (1999) shows their vision of a chemically stratified mantle perturbed by the downgoing subducted slabs of oceanic lithospere (blue).

D-DIA Apparatus

This image is a schematic of a D-DIA apparatus used for mineral deformation experiments at high temperature and pressure.

Geotherm with Pressure-Temperature Ranges Accessible by Static Techniques

This graph shows a geotherm together with the temperature and pressure ranges over which certain experimental methods are useful.

Ultrasonic Measurements Under Transition Zone Conditions

This image presents a schematic of the experimental setup used by Wang and Li (2003) to conduct ultrasonic measurements of sample deformation under transition zone conditions.

Mineralogy of Earth's Structure

Cartoon cross section of a subduction zone showing the principal mineralogy of the upper 800 km of Earth's mantle. Arc volcanism at the surface is depicted, as are upper mantle earthquakes (red ...

Geologic History of the San Andreas Fault System

This page from the USGS resource This Dynamic Earth (online edition) describes the evolution of the western coast of North America. A series of block diagrams shows how the subduction zone along the ...

Tectonic Evolution of Western North America

This narrative set of cartoons illustrate a hypothesized sequence of events in Western North America's recent geologic history beginning at 30 Ma. Each cartoon is accompanied by explanatory text ...

Mantle Convection using Adaptive Mesh Refinement

This page from the University of Texas at Austin gives a snapshot and brief description of an adaptive mesh refinement (AMR) global mantle convection simulation. Part of the TACC Scientific ...

Mantle plumes - both deep and shallow

This webpage summarizes a 2004 paper published in the journal Science by Montelli and others suggesting that some mantle plumes are "deep" (interpreted to ...

Mantle Plumes and Mountain Building

This page presents an abstract from the American Scientist March-April 1999 issue. It discusses how the westward progress of the North American plate over the relatively stationary Yellowstone plume ...
