ANIMAL is playing host to Visiting Scientists.
Dr. Mark Anderson,
University of Plymouth (England) is collaborating
with Drs. Mark Steltenpohl and Bill Hames on tectonic research in the northern Caledonides.
2007 GSA Annual
Meeting & Exposition was held in Denver, 28-31 October, Colorado.
The following studies at this meeting have been completed in ANIMAL.
RAPID MIDDLE MIOCENE DENUDATION OF THE EASTERN HIMALAYAS: LASER 40AR/39AR AGE CONSTRAINTS ON MIOCENE SEQUENCES FROM THE BENGAL BASIN.
UDDIN, Ashraf, HAMES, Willis E., RAHMAN, Mohammad Wahidur, and ZAHID, Khandaker
METALLOGENY AND MAGMATISM IN THE EARLY YELLOWSTONE HOTSPOT:
HAMES, Willis E., SAUNDERS, James, UNGER, Derick L., and KAMENOV, George D.
40AR/39AR MUSCOVITE COOLING DATES FROM LIVERPOOL LAND, EAST GREENLAND AND THEIR CONSTRAINTS TO MODELS OF THE COLLISION BETWEEN BALTICA AND LAURENTIA
Dannena R. , HAMES, Willis E., STELTENPOHL, Mark G.
and ANDRESEN, Arild
RECONCILING METAMORPHIC TIMING BETWEEN PRECAMBRIAN BASEMENT AND CALEDONIAN ALLOCHTHONOUS COVER IN THE LOFOTEN TERRANE, NORTH NORWAY
K. Thomas B. , STELTENPOHL, Mark G. 2, HAMES, Willis E. , BALL, Jacob B. , and ANDRESEN, Arild
LEAD ISOTOPE DATA FROM PRECIOUS-METAL MINERALS: IMPLICATIONS FOR THE GENESIS OF BONANZA EPITHERMAL AU-AG-SE DEPOSITS OF THE NORTHERN GREAT BASIN, USA
SAUNDERS, James A.,KAMENOV, George D., HAMES,
Willis E., and UNGER, Derick L.,
Georgia Geological Society visit the Georgia Blue Ridge for the 2007
Annual Field Trip on October 12-14.
The trip, entitled: Tectonics of the Georgia Blue Ridge:
basement/cover rift architecture, important aspects of overlying drift
and clastic wedge facies, and the westernmost accretionary terrane.
The field trip was lead by Jim Tull and Chris Holm- Florida State
University, Mark Groszos- Valdosta State University, and Bill Hames-
During Meeting, Dr. Bill Hames and his MS student Wayne McDonald presented their 40Ar/39Ar age dating studies from Western Blue Ridge province of the southeastern Appalachians.
Dr. M. Zeki Billor recently joined
ANIMAL as a Research Fellow. Zeki, who completed a
PhD dissertation on the geochemistry of chromite deposits at
Çukurova University, Turkey, has been a visiting scientist in the
department since 2005. In his new appointment, Zeki’s main
role will be to support the research activities of the Auburn Noble
Isotope Mass Analysis Laboratory and conduct independent research in
geochemistry and geochronology.
