Proterozoic Geology

Geological studies of rock of appropriate age are being performed in the Hudson Highlands of southeastern New York and in the Adirondack Mountains. Specific investigations involve the chemistry of amphibole and tourmaline group minerals in Grenville-age rocks, Mn-rich schistose rocks in the Adirondacks, and Fe deposits in the Hudson Highlands. The staff member involved in these studies also holds the position of Curator of Geology for the New York State Museum.
