TeMaS – Terrestrial Magmatic Systems

website: https://temas.uni-mainz.de

TeMaS is a collaborative effort that coordinates interdisciplinary research on magmatic processes in     the broadest sense, from the generation of magma in the Earth’s mantle through its eruption in volcanoes and how that impacts the atmosphere and climate.

Our goal is to understand how magmatic processes work on vastly different scales and how different environments (subsurface, surface, and atmosphere) are intertwined. This will be achieved by combining unique expertise and multidisciplinary approaches of members of the Departments of the Geological and Atmospheric Sciences at the Universities of Mainz, Frankfurt and Heidelberg.

TeMaS is funded by grants from Rheinland-Pfalz, the University of Frankfurt and Heidelberg University.
