Dr. Meert's research group focuses broadly on the interval of geologic time from the Mesoproterozoic (~1200 Ma) through the earliest Paleozoic (~490 Ma). We use paleomagnetism and geochronology to trace the history of continents during that time period (particularly the continents making up Gondwana). We also examine the relationship between plate configuration, paleoclimate and the evolution of life on earth. Past and current projects have covered vastly different parts of the globe (Laurentia, Baltica, Eastern Africa, southwest Africa, Madagascar, India, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan and Mongolia).
