Diamonds - Time capsules of volatiles and the key to dynamic Earth evolution

Timmerman, Suzette


Noble gas analyses of basalts indicate that the present-day structure of the Earth comprises a slightly degassed lower mantle and highly degassed upper mantle. The extent and timing of mantle in and out-gassing and sources of volatiles are, however, not well-constrained and require quantification. The objective of this thesis is to address these questions through a study of the noble gas composition of diamonds as diamonds, being chemically inert, can preserve information on the fluid and...[Show more]
