Using Apatite Fission Track Thermochronology to Date Cenozoic Range Growth with Examples from NW Argentina
Edward Sobel is the principal investigator of the G2.3 Project in the International Research Training Group "StRATEGy" and holds a professorship in thermochronology at the University of Potsdam. He leads the fission-track and the mineral separation laboratories. His research interest is constraining deformation and exhumation histories by using apatite fission-track thermochronology combined with geologic, topographic and climatic data with the aim of understanding the underlying tectonic history and the interactions between tectonics and surface processes. In a larger context, his research has focused on basin analysis, sedimentology, thermochronology, regional tectonics, and near-surface processes, primarily in Central Andes and Central Asia.
