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.

Historical Views of the Earth

This composite image shows how conception of the deep interior of the planet has changed over the last ~350 years.

Capabilities of Experimental Apparatus

This diagram displays the pressure/temperature conditions capable of being simulated with two types of experimental equipment: Piston-Cylinder and USSA-2000. The ranges of conditions are plotted on a ...

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 ...

Links to Mineral Physics

This chart shows how mineral physics can be an important part of both research and education across the geology curriculum.

Kirscher's Earth Stucture

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

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 dots ...

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.

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 Superswell and Darwin Rise: Thermal No Longer?

This short online article, from the mantleplumes.org website, reviews the evidence for a thermal plume-related cause of the large shallow region in the western Pacific Ocean containing the Darwin ...

Superplume Concept Applies To Tharsis Area On Mars

This online article, published by the now defunct Daily University Science News (the article is still available in their archives), reports on the proposal of Victor Baker and Shigenori Maruyama, ...

Convection Plumes in the Lower Mantle

This is the classic 1971 Nature paper in which W.J. Morgan proposed deep mantle plumes for the origin of hotspots.

Beneath Yellowstone: Evaluating Plume and Nonplume Models Using Teleseismic Images of the Upper Mantle

In this online article published in GSA Today, the authors present recent teleseismic data bearing on the question of the depth of the mantle anomaly beneath Yellowstone, and the origin of hotspots ...
