Shake, Rattle and Roll: Communicating Lethal Risks

13:00 - 14:00 26 January 2021

The Centre for Crisis Studies and Mitigation presents Dr. Carina Fearnley, Associate Professor in Science and Technology Studies, and the Director of the UCL Warning Research Centre. The 2009 L’Aquila 6.3 magnitude earthquake sent a ‘shockwave’ through the hazard scientific community, causing scientists to become increasingly concerned..

Bursting bubbles: new perspectives on volcanic eruptions from the communities who experience them

13:00 - 14:00 23 February 2021

Prof Jenni Barclay, UEA, Norwich, joins us for a Department of Earth and Environmental Sciences seminar. Abstract below. Some 800 million people live within 100 km of an active volcanic system and their observations provide useful insights on the phenomena, impacts and attendant uncertainty when they erupt. Analysis of community experiences..

Diamonds illuminate the nature of Earth’s deep and dynamic carbon cycle

13:00 - 14:00 09 March 2021

Dr Sami Mikhail, Min Soc Distinguished Lecturer, University of St Andrews, joins us for a Department of Earth and Environmental Sciences seminar. Abstract below. Carbon is omnipresent in the Earth system. The predominant mechanisms driving exchange between Earth’s layers are diffusion, volcanism, and chemomechanical mixing (i.e., plate tec..

One Reason Why Aerospace Needs Geologists: How Mineral Dust Damages Engines

13:00 - 14:00 23 March 2021

Dr Rory Clarkson, Rolls Royce, joins us for a Department of Earth and Environmental Sciences seminar. Abstract below. Sand and mineral dust is increasingly becoming a problem for jet engine powered aviation, costing billions of dollars’ worth of damage, increased fuel burn and delayed or cancelled flights. These problems are being driven p..

An audit for action: BAME representation the geosciences

13:00 - 14:00 20 April 2021

Benjamin Fernando, Dept Earth Sciences, University of Oxford, joins us for a Department of Earth and Environmental Sciences seminar. Abstract below. The representation of students and staff from ethnic minority backgrounds in the geosciences leaves much to be desired. However, it is immensely exciting to see a growing number of initiatives a..

Hot rocks beneath our feet; 3D seismic reflection imaging of the processes and products of crustal magmatism

13:00 - 14:00 04 May 2021

Prof Christopher Jackson, University of Manchester, joins us for a Department of Earth and Environmental Sciences seminar. Abstract below. Volcanoes are hot, loud and scary, thus we know little of their internal structure or underlying 'plumbing systems'. Magma intrusion in the Earth's crust, and the extrusion of this material on its surface..

The spread of livestock, dairy and millet into the eastern steppes: Biomolecular perspectives from the Altai mountains and the Mongolian steppe

13:00 - 11 May 2021

Prof Cheryl Makarewicz, University of Kiel, joins us for a Department of Earth and Environmental Sciences seminar. Abstract below. The spread of domesticated plants and animals across the Eurasian steppe sparked the emergence of novel subsistence strategies that converted expanses of plant biomass unavailable for human consumption into a rel..
