The geological evolution of Heard Island, Australian Antarctic Territory (2015)$19,434
Description
Our objectives are to:1. Determine the absolute age of 15 strategically selected lava flow samples on Heard Island using Ar-Ar dating techniques, permitting the recent volcanism of Heard Island temporally constrained.2. Integrate the Ar-Ar dating data from this project with historical and remote sensing data to construct a temporal sequence of lava producing events on Heard Island.3. Place the timing and magnitude of volcanic activity on Heard Island in the context of volcanism on the Kerguelen Plateau. MethodologyThe technique used to determine the ages of lavas will be Argon-Argon dating, a method that has been used successfully to date young lava flows in Hawaii. The samples used in this study will be analysed using a combination of X-ray fluorescence spectroscopy (XRF), petrography at the University of Tasmania and 40Ar/39Ar dating at Oregon State University, USA. The 40Ar/39Ar dating method is suitable for the study of relatively young (<Xxx ka) lava flow samples, as shown by recent research results from Prof. Duncan's research group. The 40Ar/39Ar method involves sample irradiation in a nuclear reactor. This converts a small number of 39K atoms to 39Ar atoms (McDougall & Harrison, 1999). Following irradiation, the sample is fused in a vacuum system. The sample is heated in a series of steps starting below the temperature of fusion (McDougall & Harrison, 1999). For each step the argon is analysed isotopically in a mass spectrometer. The relative abundance of 40Ar, 39Ar, 37Ar, 36Ar +/- 38Ar are measured. The mass spectrometer used for the Argon dating is a Thermo Scientific Model Argus VI mass spectrometer. This spectrometer is the leading technology in the Ar-Ar dating method providing a larger range of data, improved accuracy and the capacity to analyse smaller samples than previous mass spectrometersOutcomesWe will produce:a) A geological map of Heard Island using the Ar-Ar age dates determined during this study.b) Publications to international peer-reviewed journals.c) Geological information pertinent to fundamental understanding of Australia's only active volcano.Further, the outcomes of this study will inform the research mission voyage and dredging plans on the IMAS/UTAS Marine National Facility Cruise (R/V Investigator) to Heard Island in 2015/2016.
