evolution of orogenic belts and continental margins, and reconstructing
the P-T-time history of metamorphic rocks. These studies involve field
mapping, mineral analysis, application of geothermobarometers, phase
equilibria, and a variety of geochronological techniques to metamorphic
rocks to develop a tectonic model for the area studied.
Fluid - rock
interaction, with special emphasis on the role of fluids in metamorphism
and ore genesis (particularly in subduction zone settings).
