2008-2010 Platinum group elements (PGE) and Re-Os isotope systematics of Wenduermiao-Xilamulunhe ophiolites, Inner Mongolia: petrology and tectonic implications
Igneous Petrology provides integrated, comprehensive coverage of physical and chemical facets of magmatic rocks and magma systems. Field relations and fabrics of rocks together with their mineralogical, chemical and isotopic compositions facilitate interpretation of rock origin. The dynamic evolution of magma systems is considered from their chemical and kinetic properties. Sources of magmas and how they are generated and subsequently evolve are also considered in the context of global tectonics.
An introduction to all key areas of physical geology, as well as the compositions of the earth, the states of the Earth’s interior and recent events that have shaped our world. It also involves investigations into the way the earth works, how rocks and mountains are formed, how the crust and mantle interact with each other. The course also integrates current thinking on processes (such as plate tectonics, changes throughout geologic time).
