Marek Awdankiewicz

Marek Awdankiewicz is a geologist specialised in studies of volcanic rocks in ancient successions. He carried out research mainly in the Sudetes in the eastern part of the Variscan Belt, working on metabasites and other Lower Palaeozoic metavolcanic rocks, Permo-Carbonifeorus volcanites and lamprophyres, as well as Cenozoic basalts. Using the results of field work, petrographic and mineralogical methods, geochemistry and isotope geochemistry as well as U-Pb zircon dating he tries to reconstruct the evolution of ancient volcanic systems in the context of their tectonic and environmental setting. He is professor of geology and the head of the Department of Mineralogy and Petrology at the University of Wrocław. He carries out lectures and laboratory and field courses in general geology, petrology, mineralogy,
igneous geochemistry and volcanology.
