Meet our Facilities: The Arizona LaserChron Center

Three researchers work at a computer while two researchers stand at equipment in back of room.Researchers from around the world use information from the Arizona LaserChron Center to address a wide range of questions that focus on the histories of magmatic activity, patterns of sediment transport, ages of ore deposits, rates of faunal extinctions, sources of hydrocarbons, ages of mountain building, and chronology of climate change. This research is reported in a constant stream of publications, with ALC data reported in an average of over 100 journal articles published per year.
