Hydrothermal geochemistry, tracing fluid flow, economic geology
Sarah Gleeson is primarily interested in the origins and evolution of hydrothermal systems, including the formation of mineral deposits. In particular, she uses a range of geological and geochemical techniques to recognize and trace paleofluid flow in crustal rocks on a range of scales. Along with conventional mapping, petrography and stable isotopic techniques the main focus of this work involves the analyses of fluid inclusions, the only way of directly sampling these fluids
I am interested in attracting graduate students in the following areas
- The formation of hydrothermal ore deposits
- The formation of Ni laterite deposits
- Halogens and chlorine isotopes in fluid inclusions and minerals
