Upcoming TeMaS Annual Meeting, December 2021

We are planning to have our annual meeting on December 2–4, 2021, at the Parkhotel am Taunus in Oberursel. We will discuss ongoing and future projects and, most importantly, we will delineate joint projects that will become the core of the planned collaborative research center.

3D Numerical Modelign of La Palma

In this tutorial, your will learn how to use real data to create a geodynamic model setup with LaMEM. We will use the data of La Palma, which is a volcanic island that started erupting in mid september 2021.

JGU Press Release of TeMaS related Nature Communications Paper

Research team of the INGV Osservatorio Vesuviano and Mainz University (Luca De Siena) analyzes seismic noise at the Campi Flegrei supervolcano over the last decade.

DFG Grant for Luca De Siena

The project will combine novel seismic imaging and geodynamic approaches especially developed for magmatic systems and apply them to understand volcanism across the SE Asia - Australia collision zone.

TeMaS sponsored a field trip to Vulcano, Italy

Halogens (F, Cl, Br, I) are important volatile components in magmas, in addition to H2O, CO2 and S. Their extremely high chemical activity in melts and fluids leads to a significant influence on the properties of magmas, on magma degassing, on the extraction, transport and deposition of metals as well as on the chemistry of volcanic emissions and composition of atmosphere.

DFG Grant for Andreas Junge

The grant is for a large-scale magnetotelluric investigation of the conductivity distribution within magmatic systems in the context of tectonic processes.

Nature paper co-authored by Miriam Reiss

This paper examines the relationship of CO2 fluxes in some continental rifts and the production and location of carbonate-rich magmas.

Alexander von Humboldt Research Fellowship for Prof. de Silva

Professor Shan de Silva (Oregon State University) received an Alexander von Humboldt Fellowship to work with Axel Schmitt (Heidelberg) and the wider TeMaS team. Shan is interested in volcanology and geophysics.

ERC Advanced Grant for Jan Esper

TeMaS member Jan Esper has received an ERC Advanced Grant for improving dendochronological archives. Read more about it here and here. Trees be warned!

Lisa's paper in Journal of Petrology accepted

Lisa’s paper on modelling magmatic systems with a combined thermodynamic and thermomechanical modelling approach was accepted in the Journal of Petrology, which is one of the top journals of the field.
