C. Ballhaus
...Volume 2 on the mantle and the core will be a rich source of data, concepts, and ideas indispensible for any graduate and postgraduate researcher in the field of mantle petrology.

About the Author


Origin and Evolution of Continental Lithosphere My research on this topic includes the development and application of Re-Os isotope geochronology to samples of the continental mantle. These studies provide information on the chronology of mantle formation; chemical characteristics of the lithospheric mantle with implications for its mechanism of formation and interaction with fluids/melts from the underlying mantle; and the role of the mantle lithosphere in continent formation and survival. Research areas include a large multidisciplinary study involving seismology, geology, petrology, geochemistry and geochronology of the southern African cratons as well as more restricted studies of the mantle beneath the Wyoming, Siberian, Sino-Korean, and Slave cratons.

History of Planetary Differentiation in the Early Solar Nebula This effort focuses on the chronology of planetary differentiation as recorded in the differentiated meteorites. Applications include Pb-Pb absolute age determinations for the eucritic meteorites and recently the development of a high precision ICP-mass spectrometry technique for silver isotopic analysis. The latter technique is being used to extract chronological information from the 107Pd-107Ag short-lived radiometric system in various iron meteorites and terrestrial materials with the intent of better defining the time scale of core formation in rocky planetesimals and the Earth.
