A prototype miniature mass spectrometer for in situ analysis of trace elements on planetary surfaces
Interrogation of the chemical composition of rocky planets provides a deeper understanding of the history and evolution of the solar system. While laboratory studies of returned samples and remote sensing surveys of planetary ...
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 ...
