It’s been a pleasure working with MUN Earth Sciences PhD student Pei Wang on her study of the Goban Spur which has now been accepted in Tectonophysics! https://doi.org/10.1016/j.tecto.2020.228364
The short web page summary of our recent paper in Earth-Science Reviews is now available on the mantleplumes.org website! Please take a look at both the online summary and the original paper.
Next semester the 3rd year structural geology labs will include 3D printed objects. This is part of an ongoing study investigating the use of such objects in structural geology education with collaborators at both here at McMaster University (Dr. Rebecca Moumblow) and University of Toronto (Dr. Heidi Daxberger and Dr. Tasca Santimano).
Please consider submitting an abstract to our session on transform margins and oblique rifting at EGU 2020: https://meetingorganizer.copernicus.org/EGU2020/session/34921. There will also be a dedicated special issue of EGUs Solid Earth to accompany the session, and we can also confirm that Prof. Laetitia Le Pourhiet from ISTeParis, Sorbonne Université, France will give an invited talk inContinue reading “EGU 2020 session – “The spectrum of obliquity: A multidisciplinary approach from orthogonal rifts to transform tectonics””
The preface/mini review for our North Atlantic special issue has now been accepted. If you would like a copy please send me a message.
The Geological Society of London Special Publication “Fifty Years of the Wilson Cycle Concept in Plate Tectonics” is now available in print! I have been watching this Special Publication come together for a while, authoring and reviewing papers in here. Can’t wait for my copy to arrive! The list of papers is here, and youContinue reading “Geol Soc Wilson Cycle volume is now available in print”
On behalf of my co-editors Christian Schiffer and Scott Jess, I would like to draw your attention to our Special Issue “Structural, tectonic and magmatic evolution of rifted continental margins” in the open-access journal Geosciences, which is now open for submissions. Further details can be found here. We welcome research on rifted margins across allContinue reading “Geosciences Special Issue – “Structural, Tectonic, and Magmatic Evolution of Rifted Continental Margins””
Our paper “Structural inheritance in the North Atlantic” by Schiffer et al. has now been published in Earth-Science Reviews and can be found here. If you don’t have access please get in touch. The paper is part of our special issue in Earth-Science Reviews specifically looking at the tectonic evolution of the North Atlantic region.Continue reading “ESR Structural Inheritance paper published”
Had a great morning on the Hamilton Escarpment with Prof. Carolyn Eyles and her students. This work is investigating why some parts of the escarpment may be prone to collapse. In particular, the students are looking at the nature of fractures, their distribution and how this is controlled by stratigraphy.
I had a great time today giving an invited talk and meeting people at Western University. Thanks for having me and I am very much looking forward to visiting again for the multi-hazard workshop next month!
