Welcome to our lab at UConn! The Basin Analysis and Helium Thermochronology Laboratory (BAHTL) houses sample preparation facilities and instrumentation for (U-Th-Sm)/He thermochronology. We collaborate on a range of Earth science projects in tectonics, mountain-building, magmatism, sedimentary basin processes, provenance analysis, long-term landscape evolution, paleoclimate, and more [your project here].

Since the lab was established in 2018, we have supported over 50 students and researchers. Our goal is to work with you collaboratively to generate high-quality thermochronology data and to help you develop an interpretative framework for your findings. Learn more about our facility in our UConn BAHTL Information 2024.

Are you a graduate student with interests in thermochronology? We are an AGeS-Grad lab partner and welcome geochronology applicant inquiries for the 2024 application cycle.

Please direct lab inquiries to Associate Professor Dr. Julie Fosdick (julie.fosdick@uconn.edu).
