Professor David Green's research fields are in petrology, particularly of basaltic and ultramafic rocks and the processes of melting and metamorphism in the Earth's deep crust and upper mantle. He is an experimental petrologist, using laboratory techniques at high pressures and temperatures to simulate processes in the Earth. Experimental projects are paralleled by studies of natural rocks or are directly related to geodynamic models of magmatism and plate tectonics. He continues to explore the fundamental roles that very small contents of carbon and hydrogen (as water, methane, diamond or graphite, and carbon dioxide) play in the mineralogy and melting characteristics of the Earth. David is author or co-author of over 230 scientific research papers.
Completion of writing up of experimental and petrological projects on upper mantle petrogenesis; research collaborations linked to prior work.
