Dr Annemarie Pickersgill

I’m a Leverhulme Early Career Research Fellow at the NEIF Argon Isotope Facility, part of the Scottish Universities Environmental Research Centre (SUERC).

My research is focused on hypervelocity impact craters, in particular the creation of habitable environments through impact-generated hydrothermal systems, age determination of impact structures, and shock metamorphism.

My current research project is investigating how long impact-generated hydrothermal systems remain active after formation, using a combination of geochronology and numerical simulations.

K-Ar and Ar/Ar geochronology

Learning aims: This course will demonstrate best practice for the collection and analysis of geological samples that can be dated using the Ar-Ar method. It provides the theory behind the technique [...]
