"Early terrestrial crust formation: petrogenesis of the oldest rocks within the Acasta Gneiss Complex"

Jesse Reimink

March 17, 2016
DTM Weekly Seminar Series
Jesse Reimink

Jesse Reimink, a postdoctoral associate at DTM, will give a talk titled, "Early terrestrial crust formation: petrogenesis of the oldest rocks within the Acasta Gneiss Complex", at 11 a.m. on Thursday, 17 March 2016, in the Greenewalt Lecture Hall as part of DTM's Weekly Seminar Series.

Reimink received his Ph.D. from the University of Alberta in 2015. His research interests include the evolution of crust formation through time; Hadean geodynamics; mode and effect of cratonization; influence of crustal composition on other Earth systems; modeling of complex datasets; high precision geochronology of complex samples. 

Coffee, tea, and continental breakfast will be served before the lecture at 10:30 a.m.

“Electromagnetic imaging of water-rich faults and melt-rich mantle across the Middle America Trench”

Samer Naif

Samer Naif, a postdoctoral research scientist at Lamont-Doherty Earth Observatory, will give a talk titled, “Electromagnetic imaging of water-rich faults and melt-rich mantle across the Middle America Trench”, at 11 a.m. on 10 March 2016, in the Greenewalt Lecture Hall as part of DTM's Weekly Seminar Series.

Naif received his Ph.D. in Earth sciences from the University of California, San Diego, in 2015. He uses magnetotelluric and controlled-source electromagnetic data to model the electrical resistivity structure of the Earth in order to investigate tectonic processes.

Coffee, tea, and a continental breakfast will be served before the lecture at 10:30 a.m.

"BASS-Ultracool: Finding isolated planetary-mass objects in the neighborhood"

Jonathan Gagne

DTM Weekly Seminar Sries
Jonathan Gagné

Jonathan Gagné, Sagan Fellow at DTM, will give a talk titled, "BASS-Ultracool: Finding isolated planetary-mass objects in the neighborhood", at 11 a.m. on Thursday, 3 March 2016, in the Greenewalt Lecture Hall as part of DTM's Weekly Seminar Series.

Gagné received his Ph.D. in astrophysics from the University of Montreal in 2015. His research interests include brown dwarfs, young moving groups, direct-imaging of exoplanets, near-infrared spectroscopy, and the detection of exoplanets by radial velocity measurements.

Coffee, tea, and a continental breakfast will be served before the lecture at 10:30 a.m.

"Subducting slab dynamics in regions with multiple active subduction zones"

Adam Holt

DTM Weekly Seminar Series
Adam Holt

Adam Holt, a final year geophysics Ph.D. student at the University of Southern California, will give a talk titled, "Subducting slab dynamics in regions with multiple active subduction zones", at 4 p.m. on Monday, 29 February 2016, in the Greenewalt Lecture Hall as part of DTM's Weekly Seminar Series.

Holt's research utilizes numerical models to study the dynamics of subduction zones. Particular focuses include how the mechanical properties of lithospheric plates affect slab morphologies, plate velocities, and subduction-induced mantle flow, and how subducting slabs interact dynamically with additional slabs that are in close proximity. 

Coffee, tea, and light snacks will be served before the lecture at 3:30 p.m.
