27. Precambrian assembly of a continent from the northeast to the mid-continent to the southwest: modern approaches to study ancient crust

Convenors: Benjamin Hallett (, Christopher Daniel (

Observations from Precambrian rocks across North America emphasize the roles of tectonism and magmatism in the evolution of continental crust. We invite studies that utilize geochemical, geophysical, structural, petrologic, and geochronologic tools to examine Precambrian crustal evolution and craton assembly. Student presentations are welcomed.
