Timescales of Magmatic Processes. From Core to Atmosphere

Quantifying the timescales of current geological processes is critical for constraining the physical mechanisms operating on the Earth today. Since the Earth’s origin 4.55 billion years ago magmatic processes have continued to shape the Earth, producing the major reservoirs that exist today (core, mantle, crust, oceans and atmosphere) and promoting their continued evolution. But key questions remain. When did the core form and how quickly? How are magmas produced in the mantle, and how rapidly do they travel towards the surface? How long do magmas reside in the crust, differentiating and interacting with the host rocks to yield the diverse set of igneous rocks we see today? How fast are volcanic gases such as carbon dioxide released into the atmosphere? This book addresses these and other questions by reviewing the latest advances in a wide range of Earth Science disciplines: from the measurement of short-lived radionuclides to the study of element diffusion in crystals and numerical modelling of magma behaviour. It will be invaluable reading for advanced undergraduate and graduate students, as well as igneous petrologists, mineralogists and geochemists involved in the study of igneous rocks and processes.

Anthony Dosseto

Anthony Dosseto, (b. 1976 in Marseille, France) is an ARC Future Fellow and senior lecturer in Geochemistry in the School of Earth and Environmental Sciences at the University of Wollongong.

He completed his PhD in Geochemistry in 2003 at the Institut de Physique du Globe de Paris in the Laboratoire de Geochimie et Cosmochimie directed by Claude Allègre. He then moved to the Department of Earth and Planetary Sciences at Macquarie University in 2004. In 2009, he moved to the University of Wollongong to take up a lectureship.

His research interests are:

He has recently published a review on the use of uranium-series isotopes in erosion studies (Uranium-series isotopes in river materials: Insights into the timescales of erosion and sediment transport)
