Virtual meeting on crust subduction

Virtual meeting on crust subductionTIMEleSS members met virtually in June 2021 for a virtual meeting on crust subduction. The meeting was led by Matthias Krug, PhD student at WWU Münster, and currently visiting the Université de Lille for 6 months.

The meeting was an occasion for Matthias to present his work and get feedback from the rest of the group.

Seismology training for TIMEleSS members!

TIMEleSS February 2020 seismology trainingTIMEleSS members are in Münster!

TIMEleSS PI C. Thomas is hosting a seismology training for TIMEleSS students.

Participants include TIMEleSS students E. Ledoux, J. Gay, F. Rochira, M. Krug, and guests from WWU Münster Mineralogy and Seismology labs.

The training is the opportunity to move on to the next step in the TIMEleSS project: combining Mineral Physics and Seismology observations and try to say something about deep mantle processes!

TIMEleSS Training on Polycrystal Properties Modeling

Training on Polycrystal Properties Modeling, Oct 2019

This weeks, students from the TIMEleSS project and our special guests are in Lille to learn about polycrystalline properties.

The course is focused on calculating elastic properties and seismic wave propagation features in a polycrystal, textured or not. We also spend some time trying to model texture development in a deformed polycrystalline aggregate thanks to VPSC simulations.

The participants from the TIMEleSS project, Jeffrey Gay (Lille), Estelle Ledoux (Lille), Matthias Krug (Münster), Federica Rochira (Münster), are delighted to host our very special guests, Tommaso Mandolini (Lille), Ilya Kupenko (Münster), Angelo Pisconti (Münster), Morvarid Saki (Münster), and Lea Pennacchioni (GFZ) for the week.

All should dream of Euler angles and 3D-rotations by the end of the week!
