James (Jim) W.H. Monger is an emeritus scientist of the Geological Survey of Canada and a world leader in the application of plate tectonics to the study of mountain chain formation. Monger obtained his BSc at the University of Reading, his MSc at the University of Kansas, and his PhD at the University of British Columbia (1966). Over his 40-year career as a research geoscientist with the Geological Survey of Canada he contributed the following to geological studies; Monger led the Global Geoscience Transects Project. He had an essential role in the Canadian LITHOPROBE Project.

  • James William Heron Monger, genannt Jim Monger, (* 26. September 1937 in Reading) ist ein britisch-kanadischer Geologe. Monger studierte an der University of Reading mit dem Bachelor-Abschluss als Ingenieur 1959 und an der University of Kansas mit dem Master-Abschluss 1961 und wurde 1966 an der University of British Columbia in Geologie promoviert. Ab 1965 war er beim Geological Survey of Canada. Er ist Adjunct Professor an der Simon Fraser University und lebt auf Saltspring Island. Monger ist für seine Untersuchung der Entstehung der kanadischen Kordilleren im Rahmen der Plattentektonik durch Kollision von Terranes bekannt. Es war schon länger bekannt, dass sich im Cache Creek Terrane in British Columbia im Gegensatz zum übrigen nordamerikanischen Kontinent Fusuliniden des Perm aus der Tethys befanden (und nicht von Panthalassa). Ihr Vorkommen war ein Rätsel, für das es nur unbefriedigende Erklärungsansätze gab. 1971 schlug Monger mit Charles A. Ross vor, dass dies Hinweise auf Mikroplatten waren, die aus der Tethys an den Westrand Nordamerikas drifteten. Das Terrane-Konzept wurde später vielfach bestätigt. Er ist am kanadischen Lithoprobe Projekt beteiligt. Er war Mitherausgeber des Canadian Journal of Earth Sciences. Er ist seit 1984 Fellow der Royal Society of Canada. 1995 erhielt er die R. J. W. Douglas Medal der Canadian Society of Petroleum Geologists und 2002 die Logan Medal. (de)
  • James (Jim) W.H. Monger is an emeritus scientist of the Geological Survey of Canada and a world leader in the application of plate tectonics to the study of mountain chain formation. Monger obtained his BSc at the University of Reading, his MSc at the University of Kansas, and his PhD at the University of British Columbia (1966). Dr. James Monger is an authority on Cordilleran geology. Monger concentrated his research on field studies and detailed geological mapping of upper Paleozoic and lower Mesozoic volcanic and sedimentary layers. He used this work to demonstrate that the Canadian Cordillera is a collage of displaced terranes that have been accreted to the western margin of North America. Over his 40-year career as a research geoscientist with the Geological Survey of Canada he contributed the following to geological studies; * the first plate tectonic interpretations of the evolution of the Canadian Cordillera * the first metamorphic map of the Canadian Cordillera * an award-winning paper on suspect terranes that evolved into the first terrane map of the Cordillera * a proposal for the collisional origin for the two major plutonic belts * the first trans-Cordilleran structure section that integrated geological, geophysical and geochemical data. Monger led the Global Geoscience Transects Project. He had an essential role in the Canadian LITHOPROBE Project. In 1997, Dr. Monger began working at the Simon Fraser University as an adjunct professor in the Department of Earth Science. There he has developed and taught an undergraduate course and collaborate on research projects with earth science faculty and researchers As of 2006, he was living on the Saltspring Island in British Columbia, Canada.
