Mihai Ducea is a professor of geology at the University of Arizona and also holds a courtesy
appointment at the University of Bucharest. He received a Ph.D. at the California Institute of
Technology. Ducea’s research is aimed at understanding the links between igneous and
metamorphic petrologic processes and the tectonic evolution of continents. He is interested in
continental margin processes and conducts ﬁeldwork at various locations in the western North
American Cordillera, the central Andes, the Carpathians, and southern Tibet. He runs a
geochemical and radiogenic isotope laboratory at the University of Arizona. Ducea is a GSA
Fellow who has published 31 papers in GSA journals (Geology, GSA Today, GSA Bulletin,
Geosphere, and Lithosphere) over the past 16 years and has co-edited a GSA
Memoir (2015) and a GSA Special Paper (2005).

Peter Copeland is a professor in the Dept. of Earth and Atmospheric Sciences at the University
of Houston. His
research has focused primarily on thermochronology and its application to continental
tectonics. He is the author
of Communicating Rocks: Writing, Speaking, and Thinking about Geology (2012, Pearson).
From 2001–2004, he was the
co-editor of the Geological Society of America Bulletin.
