The proposal will study the Punchbowl fault using sampling and analytics to facilitate analyzing scale of the localized features of the fault and built on a previous study. This will help the team determine if the localized features of the Punchbowl Fault experienced significant frictional heating (opposed to their original observation).
OUTCOMES: Samples collected.
Accquisition of a Sensitive Qtrap LC/MS/MS System for Biomaker Analyses
Assessing the role of fire in the African Humid Period transitions: a novel biomarker approach to paleo-fire reconstruction
Determining the Frictional Temperature Rise During the 2011 Tohoku EarthQuake
