The presentation will review an experimental geologist’s approach to study the formation of common minerals and rocks. Professor Thomas will discuss efforts to develop numerous thermobarometers that can be used to determine the pressure (depth) and temperature conditions at which rocks crystallized. Research in the SU laboratories aims to reveal complex geologic histories preserved in rocks that may involve several episodes of mineral growth and recrystallization.
