Hunting for fossil magma reservoirs in the geologic record

This talk will focus on the criteria needed to identify coherent, fossil magma reservoirs within otherwise homogeneous granitoid complexes. Recognizing these features allows us to better interrogate subvolcanic processes using the plutonic record and can shed light on issues such as the genetic relationship between upper-crustal granitoids and high-SiO2 rhyolite.

Mike Eddy earned a PhD from MIT in 2017 and is now building a laboratory focused on high-precision U-Pb geochronology at Purdue University. His interests include tectonic processes, evolution of silicic magmas, and topics in Earth history.
