Faculty note: Professors Currier and Norfleet publish article

Associate Prof. Ryan Currier (Natural and Applied Sciences) and Assistant Prof. Mark Norfleet (Natural and Applied Sciences) and recently graduated Masters student Zachary Ashauer have published a new article in the journal Precambrian Research. The interdisciplinary research blends geology with mathematics, and provides new insights into a type of granites that have been extensively studied for more than 100 years. The article is titled “Textural analyses of classical rapakivi granites: texture formation through coarsening, size-selective replacement, and stirring.” Read the article.
