12.749 Solid Earth Geochemistry


Class Info

Integrates methods in mineralogy, petrology (both igneous and metamorphic), and trace element and isotope geochemistry to address scientific issues of the solid earth. Covers processes in the solar nebula, accretion, and early differentiation of the earth. Discusses topics in three representative geodynamic environments - mid-ocean ridges, subduction zones, and mantle plumes - with respect to physical framework and petrological/geochemical aspects.

This class has no prerequisites.

12.749 will not be offered this semester. It will be available in the Spring semester, and will be instructed by S. Nielsen (WHOI) and N. Shimizu.

This class counts for a total of 12 credits. This is a graduate-level class.
