Exposure to airborne particulate matter (PM) has been shown to consistently correlate with pulmonary and cardiovascular disease.
Projects and Initiatives
The proposed research will document the circulation, variability, and driving mechanisms of the upper ocean in the “freshwater switchyard of the Arctic Ocean.” This unexplored region lies to the n
Sequestration of CO2 generated by power plants by injection into deep aquifers (geological sequestration) has been proposed as a possible alternative for the reduction of excessive green
EarthView Explorer computer software was designed as supplemental material for teaching and learning in the Earth Sciences for students in grades 6-12.
Members of our group work on a variety of projects including studies of water movement in natural systems (ocean, groundwater), reconstruction of continental paleotemperature records using aquifers
GEOTRACES is an international study of the global marine biogeochemical cycles of trace elements and their isotopes. Its mission is:
Dust influences climate by altering the radiation budget of the atmosphere, and influences marine biogeochemistry by providing a source of essential micronutrients such as iron.
A US-led program to use process studies to improve quantification of air-sea CO2 fluxes and the gas transfer velocity was initiated in 1998. So far, two large-scale studies have been conducte
Layered intrusions in East Greenland, mostly close to the contact between PreCambrian gneisses and Tertiary flood basalts, are commonly several million years younger than the flood basalts.
