Episode 6: Analysis of Earth fluids and gases for Understanding Geological, Hydrologic, Ecological and Biogeochemical Processes
Experts: Berry Lyons & Tom Darrah
Analysis of Earth's fluids and gases are essential for understanding the processes controlling geochemical cycles, water quality and ecological changes, and subsurfaces resources. Berry Lyons will present his laboratory capabilities in measuring nutrient, ionic, and isotopic composition in aquatic ecosystems for determination of water chemistries and quality. Tom Darrah will present his laboratory capabilities for providing comprehensive molecular and stable isotopic composition of gas fluxes, sources, biodegradation, and formation in deep earth, crust, and critical zone, as well as Noble Gases analyses for source, fate, migration, and residence time of fluids, including water, CO2, CH4, and natural hydrogen, in the subsurface.
The New Tools for Old Problems (NT4OP) series is designed to bring together developers of cutting-edge observational and analytical capabilities and Earth and climate researchers to identify new applications. Each episode consists of a brief (~20 minute) overview presentation by the expert or team of experts, followed by an open discussion and Q&A session to explore potential new applications of their “tools” to Earth and climate research. Registration is required to attend the live events, which are recorded and open to all.
