Geologic Fluids and Mineral Deposits
Matthew Steele-MacInnis, University of Alberta
Fluids drive heat and mass transport in the Earth and are responsible for the formation of most economic mineral deposits. My research group studies the properties and roles of fluids in geologic settings related to ore formation.
Matt Steele-MacInnis's research group at the University of Alberta Department of Earth and Atmospheric Sciences includes undergraduate and graduate students researching a wide range of topics in hydrothermal processes in the Earth. Some of our specific, ongoing research projects include hydrothermal processes beneath the seafloor at submarine black smoker vents, magmatic-hydrothermal settings in volcanic arcs, and sedimentary basins related to evaporated seawater and Pb-Zn mineralization.
