Revealing the deep earth in deep time

Grant


Scheme


  • Discovery Projects

Abstract


  • This project aims to determine the nature of the chemical and dynamical transformation of the Earth¿s interior at the end of the first 25 per cent of its history. This will provide a new understanding of the related establishment of modern surface features such as extensive continents and an oxygenated atmosphere, as well as investigate causal relationships with west Australia¿s mineral resources. The expected outcome will be a significant new understanding of the chemical and thermal history of our planet.
