John Stix

Full Professor

email: john.stix@mcgill.ca

from: New York City, New York, U.S.A.

I'm interested in :

1. Petrology and geochemistry of intermediate and felsic magmas.

2. Micro-analysis of trace volatile and light lithophile elements by ion microprobe, inductively-coupled plasma mass spectrometry, and electron microprobe studies.

3. Understanding physical processes and forecasting eruptions at active subduction-zone volcanoes.

4. Geochemistry of volcanic gases, their use for eruption prediction, and their impact on the atmosphere.

5. New infrared remote sensing techniques to measure gases at active volcanoes.

6. Integration of geological, geochemical, and geophysical datasets to model volcano plumbing systems.

7. Structure and modelling of caldera systems.

8. Subaqueous volcanism.
