New Quantitative Approaches to Petrochronology

Session ID#: 24687

Session Description:
Petrochronologic techniques (LASS, SHRIMP, EPMA, EBSD, etc.) allow rapid collection of large isotopic, geochemical, and petrological datasets that describe geological variability from the micron- to orogen-scale. Although these datasets promise to improve our understanding of geological processes, realizing the potential of such datasets requires quantitative “big data” approaches and perspectives that are less commonly applied to the field of hard-rock geology. We seek interesting applications of computational, statistical, or other rigorous mathematical methodologies to collecting, analyzing, and interpreting petrochronologic data, with the aim of moving beyond qualitative geologic and petrologic interpretations. We also invite abstracts on modeling aimed at interpreting and contextualizing such datasets.
