Exposé(s) :
Mechanisms of Deep Earthquakes and Implications for Shallow Ones
Harry W. Green

The fundamental difference between earthquakes at depths shallower than 50 km and those deeper than that is that the former are generated by stresses exceeding static friction on existing faults (primarily) and the latter require a "fluid"-...

Ultrahigh pressure minerals from both downwelling and upwelling environments : Snapshots of mantle convection on a grand scale.
Harry W. Green

Conférence de Harry W. Green

I entered this field in the last stage, using microstructures + high-pressure experiments to understand these exciting rocks. Our first studies evoked great controversy ; I will use this controversy to de...
