Marine Geochemistry

Focusing on chemical properties and interactions of submarine volcanic rocks, magmatic-hydrothermal emissions into the ocean, and associated massive sulphide deposits.

  • Organic Chemistry
  • Isotope Studies
  • Rock and Mineral Chemistry
  • Shipboard surveys of submarine arcs for magmatic-hydrothermal fluid emissions
  • Shipboard surveys for mineral deposits using low-impact rock sampling gear
  • Hydrothermal Fluid Studies: detailed seafloor exploration for fluid emissions, mineral deposits, and seafloor biological systems using manned submersibles and remotely operated vehicles (ROVs)
