PhD Course: Forging links between petrology and geophysics
DEEP partners at Aarhus University are offering a unique two week course for PhD students 3 – 14 October. They gather PhD students working in both petrology and geophysics from around the world. The application deadline for 2016 is 26 August!
The course is designed for strengthening students' background in thermodynamics, phase equilibria, heat and mass transfer, continuum mechanics, elasticity and viscoelastic theory, wave propagation, and rheology, important for integrating petrologic and geophysical (especially seismological) observations, and modeling processes of the deep earth.
The course will build a foundation of understanding based on first-principles that links the constitution of Earth materials to their stability and mechanical behavior, and reinforces these concepts through exercises, critical reviews of the literature and group projects.
Apply for a DEEP grant before 1 September to cover the travel and living costs.
