Carney and Luczaj present poster at Geological Society of America Conference

Eryn Carney (Geoscience major) and Dr. John Luczaj (Geoscience) as well as other colleagues from Trinity University (Texas), China, New York and Arizona, presented a poster at the 2024 Geological Society of America Conference on April 23, 2024. Their NSF-supported research project entitled “Styles of dolomitization observed in the Great Bank of Guizhou, Nanpanjiang Basin, South China: Evidence for multiple dolomization processes,” determined the origin of dolomite, an enigmatic mineral that replaces limestone. They used fluid-inclusion microthermometry, Laser Ablation ICP-MS Uranium-Lead age dating, stable isotopes, and other geochemical and petrographic information during their investigations.

Luczaj and Carney were als0 coauthors on two other posters presented by Trinity University student on related projects in China. Those abstracts can be found here (non-stratiform dolomization) and here (environments of dolomization and evolution of carbonate diagenesis)
