Feature: Ultra-low d18O, dD (-27.3 and -235 permil!) Paleoproterozoic rocks signifying isotopic proof of the Slushball Earth climate model pdf , pdf2
Investigating these rocks is now the major effort in the lab; We completed four field seasons and the results are being published (Bindeman and Serebryakov, 2011 EPSL, Bindeman et all 2014, Geosphere). New graduate student David Zakharov is now leading the efforts [fieldwork]
Supervolcanoes – Link to the Scientific American article and frequently asked questions about large and small volcanic eruptions

Current Students and Postdocs:

Matt Loewen (postdoctoral scholar), Youngest Yellowstone volcanism; Michael Hudak (MS from Pennstate, incoming), Dylan Colon (PhD candidate, post and syn-Columbia River Basalt silicic volcanism by means of micro isotopic investigation and numerical modeling), David Zakharov (PhD student, Investigation of synglacial magmatism 2.4Ga in Karelia Russia, and Scotland in relations to Snowball Earth)

Stable Isotope Lab at the University of Oregon has been constructed [see installation photos 1-2-3]. Mass spectrometer – Finnigan MAT 253 – is installed since July 2006. We built a laser fluorination system and a general purpose vacuum lines, installed TC/EA and GasBench as peripheral devices for the mass spectrometer. Dr. Jim Palandri is our lab manager.
