Blair Schoene - Research
My research focuses on applying geochronology, thermochronology, radiogenic isotope tracing, field geology, structural analysis, and geochemistry to processes of lithospheric evolution and Earth history. I am currently in the process of building a radiogenic isotope geology lab in Geosciences at Princeton, which will host low-blank clean room facilities and a thermal ionization mass spectrometer, in addition to rock and mineral separation and characterization facilities. Please stay tuned for updates on how this is going.

Jan. 2012: See article in Geosciences news about the completion of the radiogenic isotopes lab! After a long haul, the lab is now running smoothly and we're measuring U-Pb zircon analyses with sub-picogram blanks. See also the full length article in the Geosciences newsletter, The Smilodon.
