Studying the geochemistry of deep-sea hydrothermal vents!
How we measure 'reads'
A 'read' is counted each time someone views a publication summary (such as the title, abstract, and list of authors), clicks on a figure, or views or downloads the full-text. Learn more
As a Ph.D. student at Lehigh University's Department of Earth and Environmental Sciences, I study the geochemistry of deep-sea hydrothermal vents. My research explores these extreme environments via solid, liquid, and gas samples!
The chemical weathering of volcanic rocks is thought to be a primary control on Earth’s climate spanning 105 – 107-year timescales. The degree to which primary volcanic minerals are converted to secondary minerals, termed weathering congruency, directly influences silicate weathering fluxes to the ocean. By studying the chemistry of river water, we...
