Nature: Kimberlite ascent by assimilation-fuelled buoyancy

January 18, 2012

"Fast moving diamonds": Recent work published in Nature by Dr. Russell (EOS/UBC) and colleagues have found that the rapid release of carbon dioxideand water can transport kimberlites (diamond bearing rock) at speedsof 10 to 30 kilometers per hour. More information is available at Natureand from UBC Science.
