    Project Description

    In high-pressure mineral physics and chemistry, we apply mineral properties, stress-strain relationships and processes, such as partial melting, to geophysical observations of the deep Earth. We plan to build a large volume, high pressure facility at the Australian Synchrotron to measure these properties in-situ.
