M.Sc. Thesis Title: Mantle Modelling.
My research interest involves numerical modelling of thermal plumes in the Earth's mantle. Currently, I am using a code (CONMG) developed by Geoff Davies. It is being run on the university's ACENET computer. Regions of phase changes, subduction and pressure release within the mantle all affect the behaviour and evolution of the plume. Accurate modelling may help to constrain some of the meterial properties of the lower mantle, and the heat flow from the core.
