1/31/2013 - Measuring Thermal Conductivity at High Pressures and Temperatures in the Laser-Heated Diamond Anvil


12:00 PM - 1:00 PM
Slichter 3853

Presented By:
Emma Rainey - UCLA


Determining mineral thermal conductivities at extreme pressures and temperatures is critical for modeling heat flow in planetary interiors. I will present early results from our joint experimental and modeling effort to measure thermal conductivity in the laser-heated diamond anvil and the implications for the thermal conductivity at the base of Earth’s mantle.
