The geoscience department presents our weekly seminar:
Speaker: Tomas Capaldi
Topic: Stratigraphic response to Cordilleran evolution along the Andean margin
Capaldi focuses on Cenozoic to modern tectonic evolution of the flat-slab region in western Argentina Andes. He studies modern river networks using zircon U-Pb chronology to assess what factors are represented by sand provenance, such as: drainage area, variable erodibility, and zircon fertility of different source rocks.
