The Research objectives of the network involve utilizing recent advances in isotope measurement to quantify and understand a number of fundamental processes that control metal transport in the environment, such as the release of naturally-occurring metals from geological materials, the immobilization of metals through adsorption, precipitation, and biological activity, and the influence of aqueous chemistry on metal transport and behavior.
