This will be an overview of current activity with some seminal findings where we are using AMS and magnetic susceptibility techniques in a diverse range of studies from ice and glacial sediments, to evaporite, to studying nanoparticles in porous rocks. Dr Carl Stevenson is a structural geologist with a focus on the emplacement and subsurface distribution of igneous and volcanic rocks. His research uses rock magnetism, geophysics and petrology to determine the large-scale geometry and internal architecture of intrusions and has led to breakthroughs in understanding magma transport and accommodation in the Earth’s crust. This work has earned three academic awards including two best publications and the Geological Society President’s Award.
