K/Ar laboratory

The laboratory works in the field of geochronology by applying the conventional K/Ar and Ar-Ar methods.

The main fields of research are:
Time evolution of magmatic (volcanic and plutonic) processes
Dating of ore mineralization
Dating of metamorphism and low-grade metamotphism
Age determination of tectonic events by using the closure temperature concept

The studied areas are mostly the Carpathian Basin and the Balcan Peninsula, but selected problems are investigated also from the Czech Middle Mountains, Sicily, Sardinia and the Canary Islands.
