Survival of Hadean REmnants in a Dynamic mantle

Project description

Unravelling the mysteries of Earth's mantle

Studies of modern-day volcanic processes have revealed material surviving from the Hadean Eon, which occurred between 4.6 and 4 billion years ago. The existence of this material raises questions regarding the nature and physical properties of Hadean material, its survival in an actively convecting mantle, and whether Hadean remnants can be stored in the lowermost mantle. The EU-funded SHRED project intends to answer these questions by exploring modern intraplate volcanism, as well as developing new geochemical tools and innovative simulations to investigate mantle heterogeneities. The project will shed light on decades-old questions regarding mantle geochemistry and geophysics.
