Thermochronology & Tectonics Research Group

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.
