I work on creating tomographic images of crust and upper mantle structures to better inform geologic and tectonic models and processes. My main research projects focus on linking the seismic structure of lithospheric-scale magmatic systems with geochemical and petrological observations, better understanding how fluids affect subduction zone processes, and investigating the seismic expression of subduction termination.

Jonathan Delph’s keynote:


  • Theme 3: Architecture of crustal magmatic systems and rate of magmatic processes

    This theme addresses the physical shape and connectivity of magma networks at all scales, from the crust to the grain boundary and from the source to the volcano, including the plutonic-volcanic connection. We will discuss the rates of processes such as melting, melt extraction, magma motion, pluton accretion, eruption, as well as the mechanical and chemical drivers of them.
