Magmatic rocks are the most abundant rock type on Earth, and understanding the processes that contributed to their formation is important to interpret the rock record on Earth through time. A powerful means to trace these processes is the study of the chemical composition of magmatic rocks. During his PhD studies, Niklas Stausberg investigated the Fe stable isotope composition of magmatic rocks and their constituents, minerals and quenched melt. The findings contribute to the understanding of chemical equilibrium processes in magmas on a small scale, and of magmatic crystallization histories on a larger scale.

The PhD degree was completed at the Department of Geoscience, Science and Technology, Aarhus University.

This résumé was prepared by the PhD student.
