The Dynamic Earth Group carries out research into geological and tectonic processes under four main themes:
We use a variety of geochemical and geophysical techniques to track the progress, rates and timescales of geological processes such as metamorphism, melting, crystallisation, fluid (magma and hydrous) flow and volcanic eruptions in the solid Earth.
Our research has implications for the generation of critical metal resources, geological hazard assessment and the evolution of Earth as a planet that supports life.
We use a variety of analytical techniques in different laboratories to carry out our research: Earth Science laboratories.

New research has found that strategically placed artificial reefs in the sea could be used to stimulate population recovery in a keystone species. This could help to restore coral reefs in the Caribbean.
