Dr. Callum Hetherington
Mineralogy, Petrology & Geochemistry of Crustal Rocks.
Ph.D. 2001, University of Basel
Dr. Hetherington is interested in the application of mineralogy to the petrology, geochemistry and geochronology of crustal rocks. He has a particular interest in accessory and exotic phase minerals, and studies their compositions, fabrics and textures in sedimentary, metamorphic, igneous and hydrothermal rocks. Much of the work is based on field observations and he has worked in a diversity of geologic environments including Archean granites in southern Africa, Proterozoic metamorphic complexes in Norway and Canada, Cambro-Silurian sediments in the Oslo Rift and hydrothermal mineralised veins formed during exhumation of the European Central Alps. Hetherington also maintains a number of international collaborations, which provide opportunities for balancing his field-based work with high-temperature and pressure experimental studies.
