Article – Variable water input controls evolution of the Lesser Antilles volcanic arc

IDL researcher David Schlaphorst co-authored the paper "Variable water input controls evolution of the Lesser Antilles volcanic arc" published in Nature Journal. Abstract: Oceanic lithosphere carries volatiles, notably water, into the mantle through subduction at convergent plate boundaries. This subducted water exercises control on the production of magma, earthquakes, formation of continental crust and mineral [...]

Investigadores do IDL participam em projecto que determinou a idade dos eventos magmáticos de Macau

Pedro Quelhas, doutorando em regime de cotutela (University of Saint Joseph, Macao /Universidade de Lisboa) e colaborador do Instituto Dom Luiz (IDL)acaba de publicar  na revista “Geoscience Frontiers” (https://doi.org/10.1016/j.gsf.2019.04.011) dados de geocronologia de alta precisão do magmatismo de Macau. Neste trabalho,  utilizando-se métodos avançados de datações de zircão (LA-MC-ICPMS; ID-TIMS), demonstra-se que as rochas graníticas (s.l.) que formam a maior parte [...]
