Rick's First PhD Paper!
Congratulations to Rick Jayne, who published the first peer-reviewed paper from his PhD research. The study was published online in the journal, Geology, and investigates the spatial attributes of permeability within the Columbia River Basalt Group. Specifically, Rick discovered that CRBG permeability exhibits directionally-dependent spatial correlation, and the direction of maximum spatial correlation is parallel to the long axis of the basin underlying the Columbia River Plateau. In the paper, Rick explores the processes responsible for this permeability correlation structure, and why this feature may be a characteristic attribute of other continental large igneous processes. The online version of Rick's paper can be found here, and he is reachable for comments &/or questions at firstname.lastname@example.org.
