TRANSCRIPT

  • Cross-Disciplinary Collaborations in G&G

    Examples

    What helps facilitate these collaborationsG&G Retreat with the Deans Office, Dec. 3, 2007

  • And now also:Ken RubinStephanie IngleDeborah EasonMelissa RotellaRhea WorkmanGeochemistry

  • Hanohano Anti-Neutrino Detector (PIs: Learned, Dye, Mahoney)Deploy on central Pacific seafloor to:1. measure neutrino mixingparameters and resolve neutrino mass hierarchy2. measure U and Th in deep Earth3. detect nuclear reactor activity

  • IODP: Drilling lower crust to reach mantle(Many PIs, incl. E.Hellebrand, K. Johnson & P. Fryer) Ground-truthing seismic and petrologic models to understand structure of oceanic crust Fresh mantle peridotites at 800 mbsf?Atlantis Core Complex

  • No mantle peridotitesSeismic reflection cannot necessarily be linked to changes in rock typesProgress by collaboration between geophysists, structural geologists, and igneous/metamorphic petrologistsAtlantis Core Complex (MAR 30N): olivine-rich gabbroic cumulates instead of mantle

  • Coastal Geology, Geochronology and Geochemistry:Answering questions about the Age, Environments, Implications of Hawaiian Paleo-Reefs and Shorelines1. Lanai -emergent coral clastic terraces -Age progressive, near shore/shoreline facies, not from a megatsunami, lithospheric flexure.(Rubin, Fletcher, Sherman, 2000)Now and in the future:3. Last Glacial Low stand Much to learn: Search and discover, date rocks, search some more.. (Fletcher and Rubin)Pleistocene reef accretion. Located MIS7 reef complex, late MIS5 reef front accretion, relation to shorelines and sea level changes. (Sherman, Fletcher, Rubin, 1999; Fletcher et al., in press; Sherman et al., in prep)2. Oahu Carbonate Shelf -

  • Mantle Dynamics and Magma GeochemistryIto, Bianco, Becker, Mahoney, Ingle, Sinton, Garcia

    Combining models of 1) upper mantle flow and 2) melting of a heterogeneous mantle shows that upper mantle dynamics can contribute large geochemical variations that are usually attributed to larger scale processes of mantle mixing and mantle geochemical stratification.Ito and Mahoney, 2006Bianco et al., 2007 206Pb/204Pb

  • What facilitates cross-disciplinary collaborations?

    1. Communication-- Participation in existing seminars-- G&G Distinguished Lecture Series?-- Informal Settings - TGIF-- Stroll the Floors

  • What facilitates cross-disciplinary collaborations?

    1. Communication-- Participation in existing seminars-- G&G Distinguished Lecture Series?-- Informal Settings - TGIF-- Stroll the Floors

    2. Students-- RA positions for grad student supported by the department or the school? Pooled R-Funds?

    2. Students-- RA positions for grad student supported by the department or the school? Pooled R-Funds?

    3. Common Objectives-- Often inspired by one or two people.-- As a department, identify some common objectives (place of study or theme).
