Date: Wednesday, Mar 13
Time: This webinar will take place at 10:30-12 PST | 11:30-1 MST | 12:30-2 CST | 1:30-3 EST and will last for 90 minutes.
Format: Capacity is limited to 40 people, on a first come, first served basis. Registration has closed.
- We will use Adobe Connect for presentations, screen sharing, and instant chat.
- Audio will be through a conference call line.
- Web support will be through workspace web pages and a discussion board.
- Improved understanding of mantle melting, volatile cycling, and materials fluxes
- Measured volatile contents of arc magmas and volatile fluxes out of arcs, and improved understanding of their relationships to progressive dehydration
reactions in subducted materials
- Numerical models to predict thermal structure and flow field in subduction zone
- Advanced understanding of the interconnectivity of metamorphism, mantle wedge flow, and arc magmatism
Robert J. Stern, Geosciences Department, University of Texas at DallasDr. Stern's research focuses on the formation of modern and ancient continental crust. With the help of his graduate students and colleagues at UTD and around the world, he is trying to determine the age and composition of continental crust in the region surrounding the Red Sea known as the Arabian-Nubian Shield. His current research projects in Egypt, Arabia and Ethiopia aim to unlock how the fundamental Earth process of subduction generates thickened arc crust, which is proto-continental crust.
