Investigating the early evolution of Earth’s interior and surface by linking mineralogical, chemical and thermodynamic properties. The aim is to create a global model on crustal formation on early Earth and get a better statistical overview of crustal formation and recycling mechanisms.
Taking into account:
-Varying melt compositions and the impact of partition coefficients
-different formation processes of oceanic and proto-continental crust
-crustal and lithospheric erosion and delamination.
