Thesis: Characteristics of a heterogeneous mantle
A copy of my PhD thesis, carried out at the University of Cambridge between Oct. 2009 and Oct. 2012 can be found here. I was supervised by John Maclennan and Alex Piotrowski.
A more digestible read of Chapters 4, 5 and 6 can be found in the associated papers, which are respectively:
- Compositional trends of Icelandic basalts: Implications for short–length scale lithological heterogeneity in mantle plumes (Geochemistry, Geophysics, Geosystems 12, no. 11, 2011)
- Control of the symmetry of plume‐ridge interaction by spreading ridge geometry (Geochemistry, Geophysics, Geosystems 11, no. 7, 2010)
- Geochemical provincialism in the Iceland plume (Geochimica et Cosmochimica Acta 122, 2013)
