Research interests

Isotope dating of rocks , mainly using the K/Ar system, including the variant, the 40Ar/39Ar technique. In a former life before I retired in the year 2000, I had considerable involvement in Noble Gas Geochemistry, but have had minimal contact since. Since retirement, I have kept up with writing up projects mainly related to my K/Ar dating studies (see publication list), together with acquiring some new data, mainly through the School of Earth Sciences, University of Queensland,where I have been appointed as a visiting Professor in addition to my appointment as a Visiting Fellow in RSES, ANU.
