My research sets out to obtain new constraints on Archean crustal evolution by providing a time-integrated investigation into the initial Strontium isotope record of Archean crustal rocks. My project uses a newly devolved analytical protocol for in-situ Rb-Sr apatite analysis, which in combination with zircon U-Pb geochronology can provide a time-resolved record of crustal evolution.
