  2. BulletCheck out recent papers by QTRL members (2019-20): influence of basement faults on the evolution of the Himalayan orogen; Segmentation of the Main Himalayan thrust in West Nepal; Tectonometamorphic evolution of the Jajarkot klippe in Nepal; Spatio-temporal challenges in dating the Main Central thrust; and on Structural inheritance along the Bathurst fault in NW Canada

  3. BulletRenaud’s 2018 paper published in Tectonics received the Dave Elliott Best Paper prize, awarded by the Canadian Tectonics Group Division of the Geological Association of Canada: Bravo!!

  4. BulletMark’s MSc thesis on the Gurla Mandhata core complex in NW Nepal Himalayan received the Jack Henderson Best thesis prize, awarded by the Canadian Tectonics Group Division of the Geological Association of Canada: Congratulations!!

  5. BulletCongratulations to Alison for receiving a 2018 Student Research Grant from the Geological Society of America and from the Mineralogical Association - well done!

BulletTwo new papers by QTRL group members (March 2018): Renaud documents the early evolution of the Himalayan systems, as preserved in the Karnali klippe (published in Tectonics), and Zoe writes about some very young (8 Ma) ductile thrusting in the Himalayan hinterland (published in Geology).

  8. BulletCONGRATULATIONS to Renaud for having successfully defended his PhD thesis (Feb. 27 2018), barely 4 years after starting his program, and to Svieda for her successful MSc. defense (Mar. 29 2018). Well done to both!!

  10. BulletMark’s poster “Early Cenozoic evolution of the Gurla Mandhata core complex, NW Nepal Himalaya” was selected for the gold (first overall) prize in the Jerôme H. Remick Poster Award at this year’s GAC meeting. Congratulations!

  11. BulletCheck out Zoe’s first career publication on her detailed in-situ petrochronological research in western Nepal, published in in Lithos (June 2017).

  12. BulletCongratulations to Svieda, Renaud, and Mark for each receiving a 2017 Student Research Grant from the Geological Society of America. Svieda was also awarded a Mineralogical Association of Canada research grant for her work on the Bathurst fault. Collectively, they brought in $10k of research funding to QTRL - well done!
