RE-OS AND OXYGEN SYSTEMATICS OF VARIABLY ALTERED ULTRAMAFIC ROCKS, NORTH CAROLINA
This study focuses on the origin and modification of six ultramafic bodies located in the Blue Ridge Province of North Carolina. The bodies consist mainly of harzburgites and dunites with associated chromites. Some of the ...
THE GEOCHEMICAL BEHAVIOR OF SCANDIUM DURING FRACTIONAL CRYSTALLIZATION AND IMPLICATIONS FOR ORE FORMATION
Demand for scandium is increasing due to the use of scandium-aluminum alloys in the aerospace and sporting goods industries, and in solid-oxide fuel cells. Scandium deposits are associated with mafic intrusions and laterites, ...
CHARACTERIZING THE DURATION, PERIODICITY AND CHEMICAL IMPACT OF FLUID TRANSPORT IN THE SUBDUCTING SLAB: INSIGHTS FROM ISOTOPE GEOCHEMISTRY OF HIGH-PRESSURE METAMORPHOSED OCEANIC CRUST
Subduction zones are key loci of geochemical cycling and natural hazards on Earth including large earthquakes and explosive volcanic eruptions. Fluids produced during subduction are thought to play a role in all these ...
Rb-Sr Radiometric Dating of Rocky Planetary Bodies via LA-ICPMS
Constraining ages of surface features on rocky objects in the Solar System provides fundamental insights about the flux of impactors through time (including the putative Late Heavy Bombardment), rates of tectonic and ...
