Dr. Mosher's research involves structural petrology and field-oriented structural geology. Her primary research interests are in the evolution of complexly deformed terranes, strain analysis, deformation mechanisms, and the interaction between chemical and physical processes during deformation. Dr. Mosher currently has three active research areas: the Mesoproterozoic of Texas, the Australian-Pacific oceanic plate boundary south of New Zealand, and the southwestern U.S. Mesozoic Maria Tectonic belt.

The interactions between tectonics, climate, and erosion; Earth surface processes; tectonic geomorphology; stable isotope geochemistry and its applications to paleo-elevation, -climate, and -hydrology; fluvial and alluvial depositional environments; sediment provenance and drainage evolution through detrital mineral geochronology; sedimentology and stratigraphy; major, trace element, rare earth element, and stable isotope compositions of volcanic glass; Laramide tectonics and drainage system responses.

Owen A Anfinson
Specializes in the use of heavy mineral geochronology and thermochronology to understand the geologic evolution of sedimentary basins and their source regions. Past Research Topics Include: Ph.D.- New Insights into Arctic Tectonics: U-Pb, (U-Th)/He, and Hf Isotopic data from the Franklinian Basin, Canadian Arctic Islands; M.S.- Sediment Sources for Catastrophic Glacial Outburst Flood Rhythmites and Quaternary Eolian Deposits at the Hanford Reach National Monument, Washington; B.A.- Stratigraphy and Sedimentology of the Cretaceous Dakota Formation, UT.

Andrew J Smye
I am an Earth Scientist who seeks to understand the processes that drive crustal evolution and its interaction with the hydrosphere and atmosphere. Central to this aim is the integration of data-sets collected over a wide range of length-scales, from kilometers in the field to nanometers in the laboratory. To date, my research has been focused on: 1. Deciphering rates of metamorphism; 2. Mechanisms responsible for exhuming tracts of subducted crust; 3. Transport of volatiles to the mantle; 4. U-Th-Pb isotope systematics of accessory phases. For further details, please follow the link to my personal pages on the 'Links' page.
