In front of Lake Pukaki and Aoraki/Mt. Cook on the South Island of New Zealand.
March 23-25, 2014
Melissa Hew and Brandon Sandosky will be presenting their research at the Northeastern Section, Geological Society of America meeting, Lancaster, PA.
Melissa's presentation is entitled: 'Characterizing natural variability of groundwater chemistry: Implications for detection of CO2 leaks from subsurface storage sites.'
Brandon's presentation is entitled: 'Increased Chemical Fluxes to the Critical Zone due to road salt (halite) addition.'
Assaf Wunsch's paper on metal release from limestones under high CO2 conditions has been published in Chemical Geology. We used the laser ablation-ICP-mass spectrometer in the Urban Environmental Geochemistry Laboratory here at Towson to characterize the trace metal content of the limestone and associated phases such as pyrite.
