Dr. Alan Dickin research objective is to reconstruct the geological evolution of the Grenville Province of the Canadian Shield. The Grenville has been the most poorly understood province of the Shield, but Nd isotope mapping (Dickin, 2000) has now identified the major crustal terranes that make up the province. My current research involves detailed mapping of individual terrane boundaries in order to understand their geological history, and thereby reconstruct the accretionary growth of the Shield.
