Paper on the CL response of quartz from Sudbury offsets trending

A new study, the first of its kind investigating the CL response of quartz from offset environments in the Sudbury area and its geological implications, has been published in The Canadian Mineralogist. [(2019) 57 (6): 947–963]. 

The paper, Cathodoluminescence and trace-element chemistry of quartz from Sudbury offset dikes: Observations, interpretations, and genetic implications written by Elliot Wehrle (LU 2014-2018 undergrad) and Prof. Andrew McDonald, is currently the most downloaded paper in the journal, with > 50 reads since being uploaded two weeks ago.  The study was undertaken as part of Elliot’s NSERC-funded USRA (summer, 2017).
