PhD Opportunity: Rapid emplacement of the lower Deccan Traps and its implication for Late Cretaceous climate change
CASP, in conjunction with the Open University are looking for a suitable candidate to carry out fieldwork to the Deccan Traps, India to study the volcanic stratigraphy and to collect samples to establish a chemostratigraphy as well as accurate concentrations of volatiles in the basalt lava flows. This project will provide constraints on the association between the Deccan Traps and the Cretaceous-Palaeogene Boundary mass extinction event at 66 Ma.
