Dr. Leon Long Professor and The Second Mr. and Mrs. Charles E. Yager Professorship and member of the Academy of Distinguished Teachers Dr. Leon Long is a geology professor at the University of Texas at Austin whose research interests include isotope geology, especially to use naturally occurring radioactivity and its daughter products as a geologic clock, and as a geochemical tracer. He is also interested in applying the Rb- Sr isotopic age method to clay minerals with a possibility of dating when weathering had produced an ancient soil zone. As the department’s generalist, Dr. Long has also written the textbook for the introductory course.
