Spatial and temporal coupling between tectonics and surface processes during lithosphere inversion of the Pyrenean-Cantabrian mountain belt

While there is significant progress in understanding first order controls on styles of rifting and passive margin formation, still relatively little is known about factors that control the structural style of inversion of these structures. Especially the importance of structural weaknesses forme...

TopoScandiaDeep; The Scandinavian Mountains: deep processes

Mountains form mostly at convergent or strike-slip margins and are not expected to form in intraplate settings. Uplift occurred however in various places around the North Atlantic after continental breakup, leading in particular to the Northern and Southe rn Scandinavian mountains. The aim of the...

Topology

Topology is the study of shapes and spaces. The methods developed in topology have wide consequences also for other fields in that many problems can be encoded by means of spaces (examples range from space itself and phase spaces in physics to classifyin g spaces in algebra). A fascinating new ...

Ultra-slow spreading and hydrogen-based deep biosphere: A site survey proposal for zero-age drilling of the Knipovich Ridge

We propose to study geodynamic and hydrothermal processes along one of the most slow-spreading segments of the global ridge system. This will lay the ground for a European lead proposal to the Integrated Ocean Drilling Program (IODP) aimed to test hypothe sis on the geodynamics and the extent and...

Transport mechanisms in the ocean

We propose to apply and further develop two existing Large Eddy Scale (LES) ocean models and an existing k-e ocean model capable of calculating the three-dimensional turbulent ocean flow from the bottom to the free surface, where the latter forms part of the solution. The LES solvers will also be...

Hybrid Quantum Computers

Quantum computers can process exponentially more information than classical computers. So, whereas, classically, a 32-bit register can operate on one 32-bit number, a quantum counterpart could simultaneously process 2^32 different numbers by using quantum entanglement and superposition. But you ...
