Back Cover

Front Cover:  GEMOC studies Earth materials down to the micron scale, to answer global-scale questions about the Earth's dynamics and evolution.  From lower right:  rising plumes bring up diamonds from the lower mantle, and contribute to the formation of subcontinental lithosphere (garnet peridotite; see back cover); U-Pb and Hf-isotope analyses of zircon fingerprint the evolution of crustal rocks on a terrane scale (TerraneChronTM; see Research Highlights); subduction turns basalts into beautiful eclogites; oceanic hotspot volcanism (Hawaii) and oceanic plateaus like Kerguelen (see Research Highlights) give insights into the origin of continents.
