  • Quantifying rates and mechanisms of weathering of the Earth’s surface
  • Experimental measurement and interpretation of mineral dissolution/precipitation rates
  • CO2 sequestering and role of chemical weathering on global CO2 cycles
  • Modeling of extent and consequences of diffusive/dispersive/advective transport of chemical species in surface, ground water, diagenetic, and metamorphic systems.
  • Experimental characterization of radioactive and stable isotope fractionation during fluid-mineral interactions.
  • Quantifying the global cycles of the elements
  • The chemistry and management of global resources
