Metamorphic Petrology

Low grade metamorphism of the prehnite-pumpellyite and zeolite facies, and progressive metamorphism of high grade Precambrian terrains and the evolution of continental crust (Greg Finn) are the principal topics of interest. Study methods include investigation of petrography, geochemistry and mineralogy of these two types of metamorphic terrains.
