Crustal evolution at University of British Columbia's Okanagan campus
My group's research is focused on understanding the chemical and physical processes operating deep within a terrestrial planet's crust. Our approach combines thermodynamics and field mapping with petrology and the study of mineral microstructure. By integrating elements of metamorphic and igneous petrology we view crustal evolution and as a continuum of melt source and melt sink processes. To gain new insights into these processes, we combine data from electron backscattered diffraction (EBSD), cathodoluminescence (CL), mineral chemistry, and image analysis with petrological modelling.
