Professor Clare Warren

My research centres around the evolution of mountain belts that form when ocean basins close and continents collide. Much of my recent work has concentrated on determining how and when deeply buried rocks record the timing of their burial and exhumation, as well as on determining burial, transformation and exhumation processes and mechanisms.   I lead the Open University Dynamic Earth Research Group.

My research focuses on questions involving:

  • metamorphic evolution
  • geochronology
  • tectonic evolution

and includes studies on:

  • linking “age” to metamorphic “stage” through geochemical tracers
  • improving interpretations of Ar/Ar dates
  • understanding the extent of geological uncertainty
  • Himalayan geology
  • (ultra)-high-pressure metamorphism
