PhD projects

Stephen Jones is working on the following projects:

Measuring time-dependence in mantle convection, in particular the evolution of the Icelandic convective system and the effect of background convection on sedimentation patterns at passive continental margins
Relationships between the Paleocene/Eocene Thermal Maximum global climate change event, the North Atlantic Large Igneous Province and underlying Icelandic mantle convection system
Ridge-Plume interaction, particularly with regard to development of the Reykjanes V-Shaped Ridges and the Iceland Plateau
Influence of mantle convective support and horizontal plate motions on hydrocarbon system development
Development of techniques to estimate oceanic variability and mixing from oil industry multichannel seismic data
Thermal and chemical modelling of proto-planetary bodies during the first few millions years of solar system evolution

Dr Jones supervises doctoral research in all these areas.
