Dr. Peter Roeder

Peter L. Roeder died on June 7, 2014 in Kingston, Ontario Canada near Queen’s University where he spent most of his career. Peter Roeder was admired as a role model for many students and colleagues, and as a teacher of geochemistry, igneous petrology, and optical mineralogy. As a researcher, Peter was best known for his work in experimental petrology. Peter’s seminal work on olivine-liquid equilibria published in 1970 [1] was a culmination of his previous work in simpler iron-bearing systems.
