Note to potential graduate students:
I am accepting new graduate students for 2018-2019. I have two projects in mind. One is combining LA-ICP-MS detrital zircon ages with LIBS analyses of the same zircon crystals to refine the DZ sediment source models. The second is to build a LIBS database of detrital heavy minerals with the goal of quickly determining the proportions of the various heavy minerals in a sediment to use as a correlation tool. Please contact me if you are interested!
