> Review principles of magma genesis and evolution.
> Understand and use modern tools for interpreting petrologic and geochemical data (e.g., MELTS, etc.).
> Focus on Snake River Plain volcanic province, including readings, manipulation of petrochemical data, and field trips to key sites in the eastern and central SRP, and possibly Blackfoot volcanic fields.
> Survey of the structural and geophysical framework for the SRP, and associated kinematic and dynamic processes.
> Integrate structural, geophysical and magmatic features of the SRP for an interpretation of the evolution of the lithosphere in the context of the formation of the SRP-Yellowstone hot spot track.
Text: None required, however there will be numerous readings from various textbooks and journals.
