ENV233H Earth Systems Chemistry
Dr. Warr is a postdoctoral fellow in the Department of Earth Sciences. He uses noble gases to date the residence times of ancient Precambrian fracture fluids in the Canadian Shield. The results from this study, combined with carbon, hydrogen, oxygen isotopic analyses, will significantly increase our understanding of these ancient crustal systems and allow us to understand the role these systems may play on the Earth’s biosphere over geological, if not planetary, timescales.
