Current research


Age dating of zircon in selected samples, by radiogenic isotope analysis (U-Pb / Lu-Hf) - in order to establish the stratigraphy and timing of deposition, as well as provenance of various rock formations.

Modelling of the regional and global consequences of deglaciation during the late Neoproterozoic, will be explored.
