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.
Distinguished Research Professor Giorgio Ranalli and Professor Antonio Schettino from the University of Camerino, Italy, have published a paper in Evolving Earth titled: Ultra-slow transverse waves during continental breakup
Thais has been working with a team of more than a hundred specialists in a comprehensive re-evaluation of the conservation status of amphibians worldwide. After assessing the extinction risk for all 8,011 known amphibian species, we have found that amphibians are still in trouble, being the most threatened group of vertebrates in the world.
Congratulations to Fateme Hormozzade Ghalati on receiving a Senate Medal for Outstanding Academic Achievement at the November Convocation on Saturday, November 4, 2023.
New paper! Professor Hanika Rizo, in collaboration with scientists from the University of Wisconsin-Madison (US), co-authors publication in Earth and Planetary Science Letters, entitled "Mechanisms for generating elevated zircon δ18O in Archean crust: Insights from the Saglek-Hebron Complex, Canada".
New Discovery! Adjunct Research Professor Michael J. Ryan, together with former student Logan Micucci and Prof. Hanika Rizo have described the new small horned-dinosaur, Gremlin slobodorum, from the upper Cretaceous (Campanian) Oldman Formation of southern Alberta (~78 million years ago).
Professor Peter Crockford led an eye-opening study revealing earth has more living cells than stars in the universe! His research allows us to explore alternative life paths on our planet. Imagine a world without photosynthesis!
Zhen Li, a visiting PhD student from the University of Chinese Academy of Sciences in Dr. Gaidies’ lab first-authors new paper in Lithos. Using an example from the Danba dome in SW China, Zhen’s research addresses the ability of different metamorphic rocks to record their formation conditions, and the sensitivity of their lithological interfaces to diffusional modification.
