Accessory mineral behaviour during partial melting in the crust - improving the geochronology of granulite terrains.
Entry ID: ASAC_2690

Abstract: Metadata record for data expected ASAC Project 2690

See the link below for public details on this project.

Relating ages, determined using the decay of radioactive elements in minerals, to geological events is central to understanding mountain building and continental evolution. This research will use carefully sampled rocks from Antarctica to improve current estimates of the distribution of ... View entire text
