Selection for antimicrobial resistance in the environment

12:30 - 13:30 16 October 2019

Dr Aimee Murray, University of Exeter Medical School, joins us for a Department of Earth and Environmental Sciences seminar. Abstract below. Antimicrobial resistance (AMR) is one of the greatest threats facing modern medicine and the global economy. Until recent years, the environment had been an overlooked reservoir of resistant bacteria an..

Hunting the Hadean Magnetic Field

13:00 - 14:00 23 October 2019

Dr Rich Taylor, University of Cambridge, joins us for a Department of Earth and Environmental Sciences seminar. Abstract below. The Earth’s magnetic field provides a shield from devastating solar radiation, and prevents our atmosphere from being stripped away. The geodynamo, the churning liquid metal outer core that generates our magnetic f..

Volcanic outgassing of sulphur and metals

13:00 - 14:00 30 October 2019

Prof Marie Edmonds, University of Cambridge, joins us for a Department of Earth and Environmental Sciences seminar. Abstract below. It is well known that volcanic eruptions produce sulphur dioxide gases, which may lead to effects on atmospheric chemistry and the radiative budget of the atmosphere. High temperature magmatic gases also contain..

Novel isotopic window into old crust: tracing Earth’s tectonic regime through the evolution of its continental crust

13:00 - 14:00 06 November 2019

Dr Marc-Alban Millet, Cardiff University, joins us for a Department of Earth and Environmental Sciences seminar. Abstract below. The extraction of the continental crust from the mantle, and its subsequent maturation, has defined the chemistry of the Earth’s surface through the transfer of water and other volatiles from the mantle to the at..
