Allen Glazner Research
My research concerns a variety of topics that involve igneous petrology, tectonics, and the geologic history of western North America. Specific topics include:
- Mechanics, rates, and energetics of pluton emplacement
- Mechanisms of magma diversification
- Space-time patterns of magmatism in western North America
- Data mining large geochemical and geochronological databases
Work on the timing and nature of pluton evolution with Drew Coleman (UNC) and John Bartley (Univ. of Utah) has proven to be controversial and has been the focus of my of my effort over the past several years.
