Deep Earth

We have a strong program of research into the deep earth processes ranging from characterization and modelling of the earth’s geodynamo that produces the geomagnetic field, protecting us from solar storms, to the rheology of the mantle.

Geomagnetic laboratory measurements constrain tectonics on the earth’s surface, as well as detail on variability of the magnetic field over time, including during reversal of the field.
