Thermochronology blowin’ up all over the internet

In case you missed it, Ars Technica recently featured a science story filled with apatite (U-Th)/He thermochronology. The article is about recent work that uses thermochronology to look at the long term (Phanerozoic) history of Canada. It incorporates thermochronology, kimberlites, and field relationships, and includes a link to the full on paper in Tectonics.

The author of the Ars Technica piece is Scott Johnson, a geoscientist who often writes up interesting geology articles for the site. He is reliable because like Thermochronic, he also cares about Chicago sports.
