Description:

This Web site illustrates the California Institute of Technology's Lindhurst Laboratory of Experimental Geophysics research in dynamic compressions of minerals. The site describes how seismologists became interested in the physical properties of minerals within the high pressure and high temperature environment of the Earth's interior. With a series of images and figures of the shock wave equipment and the schematic of the VISAR setup, students and educators can learn about their current research in shock loading and impact. The site also provides links to the staff's research where scientists can find out about studies in thermodynamical models of impact-induced vaporization, laser ablation-ionization, Time-of-Flight Mass Spectrometry (TOFMS), and more.
