Science Teaching Fellows Colloquium May 6th from 10:30-11:30 am in QNC 1501

The traditional university science curriculum was designed to train specialists in specific disciplines. However, in universities all over the world, science students are going into increasingly diverse careers and the current model does not fit their needs. Advances in technology also make certain modes of learning obsolete.

Clays, Faults and Orogeny 

Dr. Ben van der Pluijm
Department of Earth and Environmental Sciences, University of Michigan 

Newly-formed, illitic clays are common in foreland fold-thrust belts, and the ages of fault-zone mineralization allow first-order constraints on the timing of regional deformation, fault weakening and fluid pathways. We briefly discuss our method of authigenic clay characterization and analysis, and focus on Ar-encapsulation dating.

GAC Howard Street Robinson Medal Lecture: The Precambrian Secrets of Yukon 

Derek Thorkelson
Department of Earth Sciences, Simon Fraser University

Most geologists in Canada regard the Canadian Cordillera as a Phanerozoic orogen consisting of fold belts and accreted terranes rich in precious and base metal deposits, and flanked by the modern Cascadia subduction zone. To the surprise of many, the orogen also preserves a rich Precambrian history that spans over a quarter of Earth history.

Aquatic Greenhouse Gas Emissions in a Changing World

Dr. Tonya DelSontro 
Department F.-A. Forel for Environmental and Aquatic Science; Faculty of Science
