Leading Edge of Earth and Planetary Sciences (LEEPS) lecture series welcomes Adam Simon to Lecture Feb. 1. Simon, an associate professor in the Department of Earth and Environmental Sciences at the University of Michigan, will present two lectures.
At noon Friday, Feb. 1, in 100 Leonard Hall, Simon will Lecture on “Exploring the Relationship Between Volcanoes and Metal Commodities.” At 3 p.m. that day, he will present a lecture titled “The Origin of Carlin-type Gold Deposits, Earth's Fourth Largest Gold Resource” in 100 Leonard Hall.
The lectures are presented by the Harold Hamm School of Geology & Geological Engineering. All Are Welcome.
Simon combines field, laboratory, and experimental work to investigate the physical and chemical evolution of magmatic systems. He is especially interested in the role that aqueous fluids play in moderating trace element mobility in environments ranging from subduction zones to porphyry-type ore deposits.
His research group is currently involved in projects ranging from the development of arc volcanoes and their relationship to melting and dehydration processes at the slab-mantle wedge interface, the physical and chemical nature of magma degassing and how this relates to the formation of metal ore deposits, the behavior of base and precious metals in water-saturated silicate magmas, and the physical and chemical connectivity of plutons and volcanoes.
Current field locations include: Kamchatka, Russia; Yosemite National Park, California, U.S.A.; northern Nevada, U.S.A.; and the Colorado River Extensional Corridor in southern Nevada, U.S.A.
