Timothy Edward Johnson, a senior lecturer at the Department of Applied Geology, Curtin University. Graduated from Geology major, University of Derby, Derbyshire, UK. He has been engaged in metamorphic petrology for a long time, and is especially good at restoring the formation, separation and migration of the melt in the lithosphere by phase equilibrium simulation of visual profiles. his research interests are mainly the Archean geodynamics and the crust formation mechanism in the early Earth stabilization, and gradually involved in the early solar system meteorite metamorphic anatexis and implications for planet formation. He has ever published more than 40 papers in Nature, Nature Geoscience, Geochimica et Cosmochimica Acta, Earth and Planetary Science Letters, Precambrian Research, Journal of Metamorphic Geology.
Report Title: Unravelling the early Earth using phase equilibrium modelling
Abstract: Briefly introduced the phase equilibrium, the process of calculating phase equilibrium and the key issues of phase equilibrium caculation, the application of phase equilibria in metamorphic geology, and the role of phase equilibria study in the research of the evolution of the early earth.
