New paper out in EPSL

A paper led by colleague Nick Dygert is out in Earth and Planetary Science Letters titled “Plate tectonic cycling modulates Earth’s 3He/22Ne ratio”! Well done to Nick and the rest of the author team. My contribution to this paper was a new diffusion experiment quantifying the kinetics of helium and neon diffusion in olivine – a key parameter that went into Nick’s numerical models. Check the paper out here, and a press release covering our work here.
