Atomic-scale to lithospheric-scale investigation of geologic processes that occur as a result of chemical reactions, and the evidence of these reactions in the rock record. Structural geologists also assess geologic risks, ranging from sinkholes to volcanoes, which could be of concern to communities and developers. In addition, some of our faculty members are conducting research from the Great Lakes Research Center.

Further in the future it’s not hard to imagine that the same technology which has seen the remote drones exploring Mars and the technology of deep sea oil wells, will form the basis of mining undersea deposits in volcanoes. There are plenty of chances to get your hands dirty as well! Follow the link for a brief recap of 2004-2008 events. Because basalt contains the least amount of silica and erupts at the highest temperature compared to the other types of lava, it has the lowest viscosity (the least resistance to flow).

Lyell, while still a young man, determined that he would endeavour to put geology -- then only beginning to rank as a science -- on a more sound and philosophical basis. In our planet's crust, such temperatures occur only briefly inside impact zones. Non-hydrocarbon economic mineral deposits. This was the final summer of a three year National Science Foundation project investigating the link between plate-scale dynamics and foreland deformation in the North American Cordillera. He is currently working on issues related to geothermal energy, and recently participated in IODP Expedition 352 to the IBM forearc to study subduction initiation.
