Deep Crust & Mantle Dynamics Groups logo

pebblesThis cross-disciplinary research effort combines elements of Geophysics, Petrology, Geochemistry, Tectonics, and Structural Geology to examine the physics, chemistry, and dynamics of the Earth from the mid to lower crust to the core-mantle interface. Faculty members across the college (Departments of Geology & Geophysics, Oceanography, and the Integrated Ocean Drilling Program) collaborate on research topics in Deep Crust and Mantle Dynamics. Graduate students in DCMD have the opportunity to work with researchers in different fields in order to carry out interdisciplinary research that addresses fundamental problems in the earth sciences that cross traditional interdisciplinary lines.
