Strategies for making geoscience PhD recruitment more equitable (2023)
Journal Article
Fernando, B., Giles, S., Jackson, C., Lawrence, A., Raji, M., Williams, R., …Dowey, N. (2023). Strategies for making geoscience PhD recruitment more equitable. Nature Geoscience, 16(8), 658-660. https://doi.org/10.1038/s41561-023-01241-z

Admission to doctoral study is a crucial step in the academic pipeline, but discriminatory procedures can disproportionately impact students from ethnic minority backgrounds. We show how these policies contribute to inequity in the geosciences and pr... Read More about Strategies for making geoscience PhD recruitment more equitable.

How does grain size distribution impact the mobility and deposition of analogue pyroclastic density currents? (2022)
Thesis
Johnston, T. (2022). How does grain size distribution impact the mobility and deposition of analogue pyroclastic density currents?. (Thesis). University of Hull. Retrieved from https://hull-repository.worktribe.com/output/4224880

Pyroclastic density currents (PDCs) are hot, density-driven flows of gas, rock and ash generated during explosive volcanic eruptions or from the collapse of lava domes. PDCs are able to travel for tens of km, traversing topographic barriers hundreds...

Characterisation of reverse grading in ignimbrites through image analysis and experimental granular currents (2022)
Thesis
Johnson, M. (2022). Characterisation of reverse grading in ignimbrites through image analysis and experimental granular currents. (Thesis). University of Hull. Retrieved from https://hull-repository.worktribe.com/output/4320614

Pyroclastic density currents (PDCs) are hot, density-driven fast-moving flows of gas, rock and ash produced by volcanic events such as explosive eruptions, the fallback of eruption columns or the collapse of lava domes. They are deadly geological haz... Read More about Characterisation of reverse grading in ignimbrites through image analysis and experimental granular currents.

Simultaneous fall and flow during pyroclastic eruptions: A novel proximal hybrid facies (2022)
Journal Article
Dowey, N., & Williams, R. (2022). Simultaneous fall and flow during pyroclastic eruptions: A novel proximal hybrid facies. Geology, 50(10), 1187-1191. https://doi.org/10.1130/G50169.1

The deposits of Plinian and subplinian eruptions provide critical insights into past volcanic events and inform numerical models that aim to mitigate against future hazards. However, pyroclastic deposits are often considered from either a fallout or... Read More about Simultaneous fall and flow during pyroclastic eruptions: A novel proximal hybrid facies.

Geology Uprooted! Decolonising the Curriculum for Geologists (2022)
Journal Article
Rogers, S. L., Dowey, N., Lau, L., Sheikh, H., & Williams, R. (2022). Geology Uprooted! Decolonising the Curriculum for Geologists. Geoscience Communication, 5(3), 189–204. https://doi.org/10.5194/gc-2021-35

Geology is colonial. It has a colonial past and a colonial present. Most of the knowledge that we accept as the modern discipline of geology was founded during the height of the post-1700 European empire's colonial expansion. Knowledge is not neutral...

Addressing uncertainty during early stage frontier exploration: bringing regional context to basin modelling (2019)
Journal Article
Dowey, N., & Yallup, C. (2019). Addressing uncertainty during early stage frontier exploration: bringing regional context to basin modelling. First Break, 37(5), 75--79

During the early stages of exploration, uncertainties regarding the nature and presence of a petroleum system are significant. The potential risk on charge conditions is typically a key factor in frontier exploration; charge has been a common cause o...

Bohai Basin: Past success and future potential in China's largest petroleum province (2018)
Other
Jennings, J., & Dowey, N. (2018). Bohai Basin: Past success and future potential in China's largest petroleum province

The abundance and relative accessibility of data within a given basin have a significant influence upon the speed and ease with which informed exploration decisions are made. In the classification of Super Basins, these parameters are rarely consider... Read More about Bohai Basin: Past success and future potential in China's largest petroleum province.
