Carr, Michael J.
For the past 35 years I have been carrying out research on the eastern North American continental margin using seismic reflection, seismic refraction, gravity, magnetics, coring, dredging, and deep-sea drilling. My research has been in areas from Canada to the Bahamas, and of different resolution scales--from the wreck of the U.S.S. Monitor to the meter-thick Holocene-Late Pleistocene sequences to the structure of the continental crust and upper mantle.

Petrology of meteorites, experimental petrology, origin and early history of solar system. NASA grants support melting and crystallization studies on chondrules and normally provide one or two research assistanships for graduate students.
