Research by Dr. Fred Gaidies et al. unlocks the fascinating history of metamorphic rocks from the Grenville Province of SE Ontario. Using a variety of techniques, including high-resolution XR-µCT, LA-ICP-MS, and in-situ Lu-Hf geochronology, Gaidies et al.
Dr. Lyle Nelson in the Department of Earth Sciences at Carleton University has published an article in PNAS (Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences) with new dates for the Cambrian Explosion:
Geochronology of the Cambrian Period
A successful session for Dr. Hafida El Bilali and Dr. Richard Ernst at the annual Goldschmidt Conference
Dr. Hafida El Bilali and Dr. Richard Ernst organized and convened a session at the Goldschmidt Conference in Lyon, France (July9-14). The session received 43 abstracts (record breaker after Hawaii 2022 where 45 abstracts also organized and chaired by Dr Hafida El Bilali and Dr Richard Ernst ) with two oral sessions (a full day of talks) and a poster session. It was a great success!!
Crawford Lake declared the "golden spike" for the Anthropocene. Congratulations to Tim Patterson and his research team!
Postdoc student, Claudia Augustin, in the Department of Earth Sciences has published a new paper on Gondwana Research, this is a result of her Cotutelle PhD. The research dated baddeleyite in SIMS and also made some Thermodynamic modeling to constrain petrogenesis of the Mangabal Complex, a mafic intrusion in central Brazil.
Dr. Daniel Peters, former Postdoc from Hanika Rizo's lab publishes in Geochimica et Cosmochemica Acta
Dr. Daniel Peters, a former Postdoc from Hanika Rizo's lab, published a groundbreaking paper entitled, "Tungsten in the Mantle Constrained by Lithospheric Peridotites: Less Incompatible and More Abundant" in Geochimica et Cosmochemica Acta. The study's novel contribution is using mantle peridotites to determine the abundance of tungsten in the upper mantle.
