Identifier: http://hdl.handle.net/1959.14/1194419
Description: Interactions among tectonics, volcanism, and surface weathering are critical to the long-term climatic state of a terrestrial planet. Volcanism cycles greenhouse gasses into the atmosphere. Tectonics ... More

Identifier: http://hdl.handle.net/1959.14/352913
Description: Peaks in the Precambrian preserved crustal record are associated with major volcanic, tectonic and climatic events. These include addition of juvenile continental crust, voluminous high-temperature vo ... More

Identifier: http://hdl.handle.net/1959.14/1048112
Description: We use 3D mantle convection and planetary tectonics models to explore the links between tectonic regimes and the level of internal heating within the mantle of a planet (a proxy for thermal age), plan ... More

Identifier: http://hdl.handle.net/1959.14/164217
Description: Super-continental insulation refers to an increase in mantle temperature below a supercontinent due to the heat transfer inefficiency of thick, stagnant continental lithosphere relative to thinner, su ... More

Identifier: http://hdl.handle.net/1959.14/161782
Description: The vigour of convection in the Earth's mantle declines over time because of the decay of internal heat sources. Decaying heat sources alone would imply a gradual thermal change from the Archaean to t ... More

Identifier: http://hdl.handle.net/1959.14/119531
Description: The physical interaction of the convecting asthenosphere and the highly viscous lower lithosphere determines the transmission of plate driving stresses from the mantle to the plates, and controls the ... More

Identifier: http://hdl.handle.net/1959.14/21178
Description: Plate tectonics on Earth is driven by the subduction and stirring of dense oceanic lithosphere into the underlying mantle. For such a regime to exist on any planet, stresses associated with mantle con ... More

Identifier: http://hdl.handle.net/1959.14/21958
Description: The Precambrian geological record shows peak of activity at 1.1, 1.9–2.1, 2.7 and 3.5 Ga, often associated with massive crustal production, orogenesis and supercontinent cycles. It has been suggested ... More

Identifier: http://hdl.handle.net/1959.14/21343
Description: The discovery of terrestrial-scale extrasolar planets, and their calculated abundance in the galaxy, has prompted speculation on their surface conditions and thermal structure. Both are dependent on t ... More

Identifier: http://hdl.handle.net/1959.14/20471
Description: Standard models for a warm, wet early Mars require a significant CO₂-H₂O atmosphere in the past. The source for these phases is assumed to be volcanic degassing. However, no consistent, dynamical mode ... More

Identifier: http://hdl.handle.net/1959.14/114436
Description: The feasibility of Archean subduction has been hotly contested, due to ambiguous evidence and unusual Archean igneous suites. The most profound difference between the Archean mantle and that today was ... More

Resource Type: journal article
Identifier: http://hdl.handle.net/1959.14/101437
Description: The growth of thickened crustal units both depletes the mantle of heat producing elements, and thermally insulates it. These effects either cool or heat the mantle, respectively, and play an important ... More
