Charlotte McLean received her BSc (Hons) and PhD from the University of Glasgow in 2013 and 2017. Her PhD, entitled ‘Shallow magmatic plumbing system and edifices of monogenetic volcanic fields’, explored the morphology and emplacement mechanisms of intrusions in the shallow subsurface beneath monogenetic volcanic fields. This research involved logging and recording the tephrostratigraphy and intrusive network of various monogenetic volcanoes in Iceland and Scotland. The field-based data was accompanied by seismic data from the Faroe-Shetland Basin, NW Scotland, to elucidate the basin-scale lateral intrusive networks beneath monogenetic volcanic fields. Pioneering research was also carried out to understand the extent of soft sediment and thermal disruption to the sedimentary host-rock during diatreme formation.
After her PhD, Charlotte worked on the Jurassic Coast developing geological field courses for a range of students.
Charlotte joined CASP in July 2019 as part of the Flood Basalt Impact on Hydrocarbon Systems Project.
