Our research group employs a number of radiometric methods to determine the thermal and tectonic evolution of the Earth's lithosphere and planetary materials. Our interests are broad and include research on:
the timing and rates of plate boundary processes
the evolution of orogenic systems
the timing of planetary processes (e.g. impact events, surface processes)
Laboratory facilities are available in the Department of Earth Sciences for 40Ar/39Ar, fission track, and (U-Th/He) thermochronology studies.
