Young ORCA: Searching for small-scale convection in the south Pacific

Small-scale convection, if it exists, should be detectable using high resolution ocean-bottom seismology. We use surface-wave imaging to investigate mantle flow patterns and evaluate whether SSC persists.

NoMelt: seismic constraints on oceanic lithosphere petrofabric

We have comprehensively characterized the anisotropic structure of ~70 Ma oceanic lithosphere. This has helped us better understand mid-ocean ridge processes and the evolution of oceanic basins.

ENAM: Seismic anisotropy of the Eastern North American Margin

This project aims to better understand mantle dynamic associated with breakup of Pangaea from relic fabrics recorded in the oceanic lithosphere.
