GEOLOGY

Lindline is Professor of geology and brings more than eighteen years of field experience in mapping igneous and metamorphic terranes and evaluating the field relations, mineralogy, and chemical compositions of these rocks. She interprets rock genesis via optical, powder x-ray diffraction, geochemical, and electron microprobe analysis. She has studied the role of igneous processes in contributing to the thermal history and chemical evolution of the crust in the Coast Mountains orogen in southeastern Alaska, the Mazatzal orogen in north-central New Mexico, the Cienega and Cerros del Rio volcanic fields, New Mexico, and the Tertiary British Igneous Province, Scotland. She has researched the effects of magma mingling and mixing on magma chamber dynamics and documented physical and geochemical linkages between volcanic and plutonic systems.
