Biographical Sketch

George Guice is a Peter Buck postdoctoral fellow at the Smithsonian’s National Museum of Natural History, department of Mineral Sciences. His current research involves conducting detailed, field-based studies that combine various geological sub-disciplines. The principle aim of these projects is to constrain regional- and global-scale tectonic processes, including those which operated during the Archean Eon, 4.0 – 2.5 billion years ago.

Other Research

  • Establishing Archean (4.0 – 2.5 Ga) geodynamic processes in the Sao Francisco and Amazonian Cratons, Brazil (in collaboration with researchers at the University of Campinas and Brazilian Geologic survey).
  • Understanding the origin and significance of ultramafic-mafic rocks in the Appalachian Orogen, eastern USA (in collaboration with researchers at Johns Hopkins University and the Maryland Geologic Survey).
  • Establishing the origin of ultramafic-mafic rocks in the North Atlantic Craton, Scotland (in collaboration with researchers at the University of Cambridge, Cardiff University, University of Exeter, University of Glasgow, British Geological Survey).
