This project involves a the application of clumped isotope thermometry to determine temperature of crystallization for diagenetic carbonate. We combine clumped isotope data, petrographic analysis, CL microscopy, oxygen isotopic analysis, and models of fluid-rock interaction to investigate burial diagenesis on the Colorado Plateau and structural diagenesis in the Paradox Basin, UT.
