 Fred Jourdan - Interests:     His work focuses on:

(1) 40Ar/39Ar dating and isotopic geochemistry of large igneous provinces (CAMP, Karoo, Umkondo)
(2) 40Ar/39Ar “speedy-step heating” dating applied to structural inheritance of giant dike swarms
(3) 40Ar/39Ar and U/Pb dating and isotopic geochemistry of subduction-related dike swarms
(4) Dating of impact craters
(5) 40Ar/39Ar methodological development (standard calibrations, 39Ar and 37Ar recoil, inherited 40Ar*, K decay constant and alteration)
(6) 40Ar/39Ar geochronology of OIBs (Hawaii, Tore Madeira rise)
(7) 40Ar/39Ar geochronology of Shear zones (Argentina)
(8) Potentially anything that involves Ar isotopes…
