Dr. Richard Ernst Featured in Nature News

Tuesday, March 14, 2017

Congratulations to Scientist in Residence Dr. Richard Ernst on today's article in Nature News about his research. The article, entitled "Earth's lost history of planet-altering eruptions revealed", describes his most recent findings on Large Igneous Provinces (LIPs). 

Thanks to the support of a large industry consortium, Dr. Ernst and his team are compiling a LIPs database that will be relevant to the broader geoscience community in the areas of tectonic processes, ore deposits and climate change. They are discovering lots of new LIPs that are very large and significant.
