Translating knowledge into understanding: MELTS and DEW

2pm ET, 20 March 2019

Modeling experts Mark Ghiorso (OFM Research, USA) and Dimitri Sverjensky (Johns Hopkins University, USA) are working to create a virtual laboratory. By combining two types of models, they are helping researchers visualize and better understand how carbon moves in Earth and chemically comparable planetary bodies. The research team is integrating the existing thermodynamic models of magmas (MELTS) and fluids (DEW) to form a framework that models the mass transfer and transport of carbon and other chemical elements within Earth. Join the webinar to discuss how this integration is transforming what we know about the deep carbon cycle and how you might be able to use these models in your own research.
