The difference is the people

When our graduates talk about their experiences at UW-Eau Claire, they have lots to say about their studies—the classes, the unparalleled field-based curriculum, the collaborative research. But what every Blugold comes back to as the single most significant factor on their education here is the people, the expert faculty who guided them  through the program, supporting not only their studies but their entire student experience. 

The Department of Geology faculty members are all experts in their fields and go above and beyond in their fostering of undergraduate research. With a diversity of specialties from structural geology to geochemistry, or hydrogeology to mineralogy, Blugold students have simply the best instructors and research mentors in the business.

Scott Clark geology class

I owe a lot to the geology department; they not only stand behind their teaching & research, they stand behind their students. After completing a master's degree and 5 years in the oil industry, I can confidently say that UWEC's field geology program/experience is second to none.

UW System Economic Development Grant ($451,317 for 2013-15) The Responsible Mining Intiative: Building an Educated STEM Workforce for the Natural Resource Industry, co-authored by Dr. J. Brian Mahoney

My current research interests involve studying the glacial geology of Wisconsin and Maine with undergraduate geology students (see publications list). Students and I have researched the history of the Driftless Area, evidence for permafrost conditions in this part of the state, the origin of the Blue Hills Felsenmeer of Rusk County (Thompson and Syverson, 2006; Hoaglund et al.,2007; Hinke and Wittkop, 2007;Orr et al., 2009;Mohr et al., 2009), and the origin of high-relief hummocky moraines and ice-walled-lake plains (Clayton etal., 2008). I also studied pre-Late Wisconsinan till units to better understand the glacial history of the western Wisconsin. The Wisconsin Geological and Natural History Survey [WGNHS] and the Chippewa County Land Conservation Department funded this project in Chippewa County, and the WGNHS published the research results as a bulletin and colored map (Syverson, 2007). I am very interested in glacial history (Syverson and Colgan, 2004, 2011) and glacial stratigraphic units. Recently served as lead editor for the State of Wisconsin glacial lithostratigraphy update published by the WGNHS (Syverson al., 2011).

Students in my upper-division courses (Geomorphology and Glacial Geology) have been involved extensively with projects to better understand the landforms in the Chippewa Moraine Ice Age National Scientific Reserve Unit near New Auburn, WI. These student projects were used by the National Park Service to develop exhibits for the Chippewa Moraine Visitor Center. These exhibits are worth a special visit to the Visitor Center (Chippewa County Hwy. M east of New Auburn). My research students also have produced geologic interpretive guides for the Ice Age National Scenic Trail in the Chippewa Moraine (Syverson et al., 2005) and in the Straight Lake State Park area of Polk County (Freeman et al., 2012a,b).

My glacial geologic research in Maine has been supported by the Maine Geological Survey. Students and I have studied striations (scratches on the bedrock surface formed parallel to the flow directionas the glacier drags rocks across the bedrock) in Maine as evidence for major ice-flow direction changes (Syverson and Greve, 2003;Syverson and Thompson, 2008;Syverson and Olson, 2011). Ice-flow directions were increasingly deflected by a calving glacial margin in the Penobscot River valley (Syverson and Thompson, 2008;Syverson and Olson, 2011) and 200- to 400-m-high bedrock "bumps" at the base of the glacier as the ice thinned, a situation similar to my Ph.D. study area in Glacier Bay, AK. Students and I also have investigated glacial-marine sediment in the China Lake and Bangor regions in southern Maine (Syverson and Mans, 2005;Syverson and Thompson, 2008). Heavy glacier ice during the Ice Age caused the land surface to sink, and the ocean flooded the depressed land surface as the glacier ice melted.

Since 2009 I have become very interested in the geology of frac sand deposits in the State of Wisconsin (see a video of my frac sand geology seminar presented on 2/17/2012). Frac sand, used enhance recovery in the oil and natural gas industry, is becoming a major industry in western Wisconsin. I have done consulting in the sand industry, and this has led to a research project studying the mineralogy of sandstone cements (Haas et al., 2014). This has important implications for the composition of airborne dust particles. Research projects and our field-based geology program are preparing our students for jobs in the industrial sand industry. These activities also laid the foundation for the Responsible Mining Initiative Economic Development Incentive Grant in 2013 ($451,000) to provide more scholarships and paid internship experiences for geology majors.

My research agenda focuses on three programs: (1) the theoretical and analytical study of hot-spot magmas in the oceanic and continental environment, (2) the experimental and analytical study of the role of volatiles in magmatic processes, and (3) the role of water in nominally anhydrous minerals, with emphasis on hydrous impurities in quartz crystals and how they can be used to study the process of crystal growth from hydrothermal solutions. Here, I briefly introduce these programs and provide a summary of their accomplishments.

I. Theoretical and analytical studies of hot-spot magmas: This program is devoted to understanding mantle plumes and interpreting the physical and chemical constraints that hot spots provide regarding the structure and evolution of the mantle. This work has resulted in a new model for the evolution of hot spot magmatism. My model is based on previously unexplained observations of Hawaiian volcanism, including the segregation of the hot-spot track into well-defined volcano lineaments. Individual chains of volcanoes along the Hawaiian track show faster age progression within each chain compared to the average propagation rate of the Pacific plate. Additionally, the two youngest chains (each with well-sampled volcanoes) show age-progressive trends in their geochemistry. The new model invokes the segregation of the upwelling plume into discrete blobs that arise from shear created by flow in the mantle. The model is substantiated by numerous experimental and theoretical studies in the earth science literature, and if it is correct, it requires that we change our paradigm regarding the nature of mantle convection, the driving force of plate tectonics, and the chemical evolution of the mantle.

To test this model, I have undertaken comprehensive studies of plume-related magmatism within the continental setting, where sampling between and within individual lineaments is possible. I have selected two field areas for geochemical characterization;the Cretaceous New England Lamprophyre Suite, and the Eocene Montana Alkaline Province. The New England Suite is a part of an elongate alkaline magmatic province that trends in time and space from the interior of the Canadian craton across the mid-Atlantic ridge. In the oceanic setting, the volcanic lineament is known as the New England Seamount Chain, which tracks across the floor of the Atlantic Ocean to the active Great Meteor Hotspot. Within the continental setting in New England, three distinct east-west lineaments are discernable. Our study has characterized the geochemical fingerprint of this continental alkaline lamprophyre province and matches it with the geochemical signature of the seamounts. Linking the continental alkaline magmatism to hot-spot origins has profound new implications for our understanding of the origin of intraplate alkaline lamprophyres and their cousins, the kimberlites and carbonatites. We are continuing the study of these rocks in order to compare the chemical and age progressions along each of the three magmatic lineaments within the New England province with the observations along the Hawaiian volcano trends.

Not all alkaline igneous provinces are associated with age-progressive lineations. Since coming to UW-Eau Claire, my students and I have begun to characterize the nature and chemistry of the Eocene high-K magmatic province in central Montana. No simple theory for the origin of these peculiar rocks can explain the vast production of mantle-derived material under the North American craton at that time. In collaboration with UW-Eau Claire students Luke Beranek, Jesse Bernhardt, Benjamin Paulson, and James Watkins, we hope to compare and contrast these two seemingly disparate magmatic provinces with the aim of furthering our understanding of melt production under an otherwise tectonically-stable craton.

II. Experimental and analytical studies on the role of volatiles in magmatic processes: The second program in my research agenda involves the experimental and analytical study of volatiles in minerals and melts. This topic is important to every aspect of earth science, as it is central to the understanding of the origin and evolution of the Earth's oceans and atmosphere, as well as global change on both the shortest time scales (e.g., the immediate effect of volcanic eruptions on the Earth's temperature) and on the longest time scales (e.g., the dependence of volcanic input on the global cycles of H, C, and S). The volatile contents of natural magmas show tremendous variability throughout magmatic evolution. As such, volatile content variability is the most important control on source melting temperature, on magma rheology during transport through the crust, on the kinetics of crystallization, and on the explosivity of eruption. Simply put, volatiles control the origin, the evolution, and the fate of every natural magma and thus control the chemical differentiation of the Earth.

Some of the contributions of this aspect of my program to date include:

  1. The first experimental study to determine quantitatively the effect of water on the kinetics of homogeneous crystal nucleation in silicate melt, and the discovery that this effect exhibits universal behavior such that we can accurately predict the number of crystals that will nucleate after any prescribed time from a melt of any prescribed hydroxyl content.
  2. The discovery that crystals can nucleate on bubbles in silicate melt, with implications for the development of groundmass texture in shallow intrusive rocks. This study resulted in a patent for the development of ceramics with prescribed crystallinities with potentially lucrative industrial applications.
  3. The determination of the effect of cooling rate on homogeneous crystal nucleation in silicate melt. This study allows us to explore the degree of crystallinity expected for silicate magmas as they rise through the crust and erupt on the earth's surface.
  4. The first determination of the effect of water on the time scales required for the relaxation of silicate melt to its equilibrium structural configuration. This study gives insights into melt behavior and allows us to measure the time scales associated with magmatic processes that occur during intrusion and eruption.
  5. The first observation of correlated carbon isotopic composition and CO2 concentration in a natural suite of igneous rocks (the Cretaceous New England lamprophyres). This study depicts the degassing history of the alkaline magmatic system and constrains the fractionation factor that governs melt-vapor carbon isotope partitioning in the CO2-saturated magmatic system.
  6. The first measurement of the hydrogen isotopic composition of water-bearing nominally anhydrous minerals from the mantle. These results offer a new view into the nature and evolution of global hydrogen reservoirs.

These contributions represent collaborative efforts with my students: (1) - (4) represent the dissertation and post-doctoral work of Mark Davis (Yale PhD, 97);and (5) - (6) represent the dissertation work of Shona Smith (Yale PhD, 00), and collaborations with undergraduate students Ken Andersen (Yale 95), and Matt Jackson (Yale 00).

III. Water in nominally anhydrous minerals and crystal growth kinetics of hydrothermal quartz: In collaboration with undergraduate students Steve Zink (Yale, 96) and An-Lin Bardin (Yale, 97), we have undertaken a detailed study of the distribution and abundance of hydrous impurities in natural quartz crystals. We have discovered that the molecular water concentration incorporated in a growing crystal face serves as a growth speedometer by recording the relative growth rates in the quartz crystal. Remarkably, we have seen that two crystal faces that grew from the same fluid at the same time on the same crystal actually grew at order-of-magnitude differences in rates. This phenomenon leads to what is commonly termed "sector zoning". Our study quantifies the growth rates experienced by individual growth faces. In addition, we discovered that our IR measurements on Li-OH and Al-OH concentrations in these quartz crystals enable us to follow the changing Al and Li concentration in the fluids from which they grew, and additionally constrain the post-crystallization thermal histories that our natural samples had experienced. Our work was recently featured on the cover of Nature:

Ihinger, P. D., and Zink, S. I. (2000) Determination of relative growth rates of natural quartz crystals, Nature, 404, p. 865-869.

With recently acquired NSF funding, we will calibrate our "water speedometer" by measuring the water contents of crystals grown in controlled environments at known rates. UW -Eau Claire students Jacob Chmielowiec and Ryan Prechel will analyze synthetic quartz samples (provided by Thermo Dynamics, Inc. of Merriam, Kansas) with precisely known growth rates. We will additionally perform diffusion experiments to constrain the parameters that control H-OH, Li-OH, and Al-OH mobility within the crystals after they have grown in order to constrain the thermal histories of quartz crystals in the natural environment that show measured diffusion profiles.

Biography

My ongoing research is divided into two broadly defined projects. My most active area of research is focused on the geodynamic and metallogenic reconstructions of greenstone belt assemblages in northwestern Ontario and Minnesota. The primary goal of this research is to examine the trace element and isotopic characteristics of volcanic and intrusive rocks and their base and precious metal deposits to reconstruct the temporal and spatial variations in the tectonics, geodynamics, and crustal architecture during the Neoarchean in the western Superior Province. In modern environments, the crustal architecture of various geodynamic settings (arc, back-arc, continental arc) is relatively well understood and the influence this has on metallogenesis is well documented. However, in Precambrian volcanic terranes, the crustal architecture and/or geodynamic setting is poorly understood or constrained. In fact, the role of modern plate tectonic processes in Archean terranes is debated. This research is achieved through the integration of field mapping, stratigraphic/structural reconstructions, economic geology, and lithogeochemistry. 

My second research project has focused on deposit-scale characterizations of ores and hydrothermally altered host rocks of volcanogenic massive sulfide (VMS) deposits in the Paleoproterozoic volcanic arc sequences in the Penokean Orogeny of Wisconsin. Political and societal issues with sulfide mining in Wisconsin has essential ceased mineral exploration efforts since the late 1990's leaving a poorly understood and understudied Precambrian orogeny behind. An extensive, but poorly documented and underutilized core suite of these VMS deposits is available through the Wisconsin Geological and Natural History Survey. Through internal and external grants, I have re-logged, sampled, and analyzed a significant portion of this core. Collaborative research with undergraduate students at UW-Eau Claire has generated a new understanding of these VMS deposit, in particular the litho- and chemo-stratigraphy of the volcanic strata hosting Flambeau and Eisenbrey VMS deposits as well as improved knowledge of the spatial mineralogical variations and mineral hosts of precious metals in the massive sulfide ore zones.

Research Interests

I specialize in sedimentology and stratigraphy, with a primary emphasis on sedimentation and tectonics and the use of radiogenic isotopes (U/Pb, (U-Th)/He, Nd and Sr) in basin analysis. My research focuses on sedimentology and stratigraphy, geochemistry, field geology, economic mineral deposits and petroleum geology. My research is heavily field-based, and I have extensive experience (32+ years) in stratigraphic, structural and economic geology field investigations in British Columbia, Washington, Idaho, Montana, New Mexico, Nevada, Wisconsin, Baja Mexico, Ethiopia, Honduras and Argentina.
The main focus of my current research is basin reconstruction and orogenic exhumation patterns in the south-central Andes Mountains of Argentina. My current research program involves a systematic integration of multidisciplinary analytical methods with complementary strengths (detrital zircon U/Pb geochronology, whole-rock neodymium analyses, and detrital thermochronology (apatite, K-feldspar, muscovite) designed to constrain source area heterogeneity, exhumation patterns and rates, sediment dispersal characteristics, and basin subsidence mechanisms. The primary objective is to establish a methodology that permits development of a detailed record of the spatial and temporal evolution of orogenic systems along continental margins, in order to constrain the dynamic linkage between orogenic exhumation and basin evolution. I am interested in a variety of projects involving geologic mapping and field relations, basin analysis, economic mineral deposits, resource evaluation, environmental contamination and associated issues.
