Monitoring Earth Evolution Through Time

Project description

A closer look at Earth’s 4.4 billion years of history

Researchers will take an unprecedented look at the evolution of Earth from 4.4 billion years ago to today, and from the atmosphere to the core. The ERC-funded MEET project will check the evolution of the composition of the mantle, which lies over Earth’s core, and the crust composition. It will study crust formation, crust-mantle recycling, and crust-hydrosphere exchange based on composition of melt inclusions and host-minerals typical for mantle (olivine) and crust (zircon). Merging geodynamic modelling with surface and climate models, the project will further explore the rate of crustal growth and recycling through time, the concentration and origin of H2O and halogens in the deep mantle, and the origin and controls of plate tectonics on Earth.
