Eocene magmatic processes and crustal thickening in southern Tibet : insights from strongly fractionated ca. 43 Ma granites in the western Gangdese Batholith (2015) - Journal articleThis study reports zircon U-Pb age and Hf isotope, whole-rock major and trace element, and Sr-Nd-Pb-Hf isotope data for the Dajia pluton, western Gangdese Batholith, in southern Tibet. These data indicate that the pluton ...
Planetary science and exploration in the deep subsurface: results from the MINAR Program, Boulby Mine, UK (2016-04-20) - Journal articleThe subsurface exploration of other planetary bodies can be used to unravel their geological history and assess their habitability. On Mars in particular, present-day habitable conditions may be restricted to the subsurface. ...
A new boron isotope-pH calibration for Orbulina universa, with implications for understanding and accounting for ‘vital effects’ (2016-11-15) - Journal articleBoron isotope ratios, as measured in planktic foraminifera, can be a useful tracer of past ocean pH, and hence help to discern the concentration of CO2 in the ancient atmosphere. However, different species of planktic ...
(2015-06-12) - Journal articleThe UV environment of a host star affects the photochemistry in the atmosphere, and ultimately the surface UV environment for terrestrial planets and therefore the conditions for the origin and evolution of life. We model ...
