Tectonics & Magmatism

Victoria Pease (group leader) 

The Tectonics and Magmatism Research Group (TMRG ) investigates processes related to mountain building, basin development, terrane assembly and continental break-up, with emphasis on the magmatic products found in these environments. TMRG applies geochemical, geochronological, and structural techniques to understand crustal evolution and regional scale tectonic processes.

TMRG projects combine field investigations with laboratory or analytical work from locations around the world including for example the circum-Arctic region, Svalbard, Egypt, Jordan, Saudi, Oman, and China. Laboratory work emphasizes in-situ, solid-state microanalysis and micro-imaging using thin- and thick-sections and grain mounts, in addition to bulk sample analysis. Analytical equipment from the PetroTectonics Analytical Facility is available for TMRG personnel.
