Dr. McLean has long been interested in using high-precision thermo- and geochronology to solve geological problems, especially those that require resolution at the limits of analytical precision. A main thrust of his research involves quantitatively interpreting the large volume of information used to calculate and interpret isotopic dates.

Slawson Hall, room 170G

Dr. Möller and his students use geochronology and thermobarometry to study the history of ancient mountain belts, and the source regions and deposition ages of sediments.
