Brothers IODP sulfur systematics

Sarah Moriarty – PhD candidate, Memorial University Brothers IODP sulfur systematics Sarah utilizes stable isotopes (Sr, multiple S isotopes) as a tool to constrain sub-seafloor fluid/rock interactions affecting hydrothermal fluid cycling and associated seafloor massive sulfide deposit formation at submarine hydrothermal vent sites from various different tectonic (i.e., arc volcano, mid-ocean ridge) sedimentary (i.e., sedimented…

Remote-predictive mapping, Reykjanes Ridge

Sofia Panasiuk – BSc student, University of Toronto Remote-predictive mapping, Reykjanes Ridge Sofia uses remote-predictive mapping, a novel method to analyze geomorphological structures on tectonically active and potentially economical regions of the seafloor. The Reykjanes Ridge, the northern 900 km segment of the Mid-Atlantic Ridge delineates from a typical slow-spreading ridge and Sofia will characterize…

Hikurangi margin structure

Taylor Tracey Kyryliuk – MSc candidate, University of Ottawa Hikurangi margin structure Taylor is investigating Haida Gwaii, and the potential connection between the adjacent triple junction and a 2012 earthquake that may be related to ongoing subduction or underthrusting. Geophysical results will be obtained by a newly deployed array of submarine and terrestrial seismic stations…

Brazilian Craton crustal growth

Victor Garcia – PhD candidate, University of Ottawa Brazilian Craton crustal growth Victor studies the formation of the oldest crust in South America, rocks of the Brazilian Craton. To do that, he is using such as whole rock and trace element geochemistry and especially long- and short-lived Sm-Nd isotopes. Victor graduated with his BSc in…

Superior Province crustal growth

Dan Stepner – PhD candidate, uOttawa Superior Province crustal growth Dan’s research focuses on crustal growth and recycling in the Archean, using a combination of U-Pb-Hf in zircons, major and trace element analyses, and long- and short-lived isotopic studies, to better understand crustal growth and the consolidation of early cratons. The application of the 146Sm-142Nd…

Luzon arc Cu-Au porphyries

William Midea – MSc candidate, University of Ottawa Luzon arc Cu-Au porphyries William is documenting the magmatic evolution in the Luzon arc (Philippines) through compositional variation of zircon, amphibole and Fe-Ti oxides. He is using zircon thermobarometry to identify fertile intrusions for porphyry Cu ± Au mineralisation. William obtained his BSc Hon. from uOttawa in 2020, before starting…

Solomons hydrothermal systems

David Summer – MSc candidate, University of Toronto Solomons hydrothermal systems David is developing a lithotectonic map of the seafloor around the Solomon Islands and in the Coral Sea, using bathymetric and geophysical data. He will also characterize the geology and (isotope) geochemistry of the Stanton seafloor massive sulfide deposit, Vanuatu Arc, SW Pacific, to…
