Tectonometamorphic evolution of Seram and Ambon, eastern Indonesia: Insights from 40 Ar/ 39 Ar geochronology (2016)
Journal Article
Pownall, J. M., Forster, M. A., Hall, R., & Watkinson, I. M. (2017). Tectonometamorphic evolution of Seram and Ambon, eastern Indonesia: Insights from 40 Ar/ 39 Ar geochronology. Gondwana Research, 44, 35-53. https://doi.org/10.1016/j.gr.2016.10.018

The island of Seram, eastern Indonesia, experienced a complex Neogene history of multiple metamorphic and deformational events driven by Australia–SE Asia collision. Geological mapping, and structural and petrographic analysis has identified two main...

On the causes of mass extinctions (2016)
Journal Article
Bond, D. P., & Grasby, S. E. (2017). On the causes of mass extinctions. Palaeogeography, palaeoclimatology, palaeoecology, 478, 3-29. https://doi.org/10.1016/j.palaeo.2016.11.005

The temporal link between large igneous province (LIP) eruptions and at least half of the major extinctions of the Phanerozoic implies that large scale volcanism is the main driver of mass extinction. Here we review almost twenty biotic crises betwee... Read More about On the causes of mass extinctions.

Rolling open Earth's deepest forearc basin (2016)
Journal Article
Pownall, J., Hall, R., & Lister, G. (2016). Rolling open Earth's deepest forearc basin. Geology, 44(11), 947-950. https://doi.org/10.1130/G38051.1

The Weber Deep—a 7.2-km-deep forearc basin within the tightly curved Banda arc of eastern Indonesia—is the deepest point of the Earth’s oceans not within a trench. Several models have been proposed to explain the tectonic evolution of the Banda arc i... Read More about Rolling open Earth's deepest forearc basin.

Shifting landscapes: from coalface to quick sand? Teaching geography, earth and environmental sciences in UK higher education (2016)
Journal Article
Dyer, S., Walkington, H., Williams, R., Morton, K., & Wyse, S. (2016). Shifting landscapes: from coalface to quick sand? Teaching geography, earth and environmental sciences in UK higher education. Area, 48(3), 308-316. https://doi.org/10.1111/area.12261

In this paper we examine contemporary academic working lives, with particular reference to teaching-only and teaching-focused academics. We argue that intensification in the neoliberal university has significantly shifted the structure of academic ca... Read More about Shifting landscapes: from coalface to quick sand?

Lower Wenlock black shales in the northern Holy Cross Mountains, Poland: Sedimentary and geochemical controls on the Ireviken Event in a deep marine setting (2016)
Journal Article
Smolarek, J., Trela, W., Bond, D. P. G., & Marynowski, L. (2017). Lower Wenlock black shales in the northern Holy Cross Mountains, Poland: Sedimentary and geochemical controls on the Ireviken Event in a deep marine setting. Geological magazine, 154(2), 247-264. https://doi.org/10.1017/s0016756815001065

The stratigraphic variability and geochemistry of Llandovery/Wenlock (L/W) Series boundary sediments in Poland reveals that hemipelagic sedimentation under an anoxic/euxinic water column was interrupted by low density bottom currents or detached dilu...
