FEST: Laura Cobden

On Friday the 10th of November 16:00 Laura Cobden, assistant professor at the department of Earth Sciences, will give a FEST talk about:

Putting a new spin on the Earth’s deep mantle

The lower mantle comprises ~50% of Earth’s volume yet remains one of the most enigmatic parts of our planet. I will present an overview of the latest developments in understanding the structure and dynamics of this region, bringing together modelling and constraints from geodynamics, seismology and mineral physics. I will particularly focus on our recent work on imaging mantle plumes, and evidence for an electronic spin transition in the iron-bearing minerals.

You can join the talk on-campus in KBG-Cosmos or online through our FEST TEAMS channel: https://tinyurl.com/fest-teams-meeting.

Drinks will be provided afterwards in the canteen of the Vening Meinesz.

Hope to see many of you at the FEST!

Best wishes,

The FEST committee
