  • About

    My research at the University of Michigan has emphasized the application of radiogenic isotope tracers to problems in marine geology and paleoceanography. Areas of interest:

    • Geochemical and isotopic studies of the sedimentary system, weathering rates, chemical cycling, chemostratigraphy, atmospheric dust, basin analysis and continental drainage, paleogeography and paleoclimate, marine hydrothermal activity, ocean circulation, paleoceanography of polar oceans.
    • Meteoritics, planetary geology, cosmochemistry, crustal evolution and the early Earth, hydrothermal mineral deposits.
    • Mercury and calcium isotopes as environmental tracers.
