"Mineral-scale constraints on continental breakup" Seminar this week

Dr. Andrew Smye from Penn State will be our guest speaker Friday, October 14, 12:30-1:30 p.m. in 204 Natural Science Building, speaking on "Mineral-scale constraints on continental breakup".

From Dr. Smye's webpage:

My research combines field observations with theoretical studies to address the fundamental processes that govern the chemical and physical evolution of the continental crust and uppermost mantle. Motivating questions include: How are heat and fluids transported through the Earth's crust? What role does metamorphism play in global climate and Earth's volatile cycles? How do cratons form and break apart? I use a range of analytical techniques including laser ablation inductively coupled mass spectrometry, electron microprobe analysis and numerical models.
