Welcome to Sirius Exploration Geochemistry. Beneath the umbrella of the Geochemistry Knowledgeable Group (GEEG) run tasks that fulfil the requirements of various European Fee (EC) Directives (EC Water Framework Directive, EC Mine Waste Directive, ENCOURAGE Directive, and many others.) in addition to the REACH Regulation (Registration, Analysis, Authorisation and Restriction of Chemical compounds).
Matters covered embrace: (1) Environmental geochemistry (including pure and anthropogenic aspects, and protection and remediation methods); (2) Hydrogeochemistry (surface and groundwater); (three) Medical (urban) geochemistry; (4) The seek for power assets (particularly unconventional oil and gas or emerging metallic resources); (5) Vitality exploitation (particularly geothermal power and CCS); (6) Upgrading of power and mineral resources the place there is a direct geochemical application; and (7) Waste disposal, together with nuclear waste disposal.
Geochemists at CU Boulder research the distribution and biking of components (and their stable isotopes) in water bodies, sediments, soils, minerals, and rocks; the interactions between microbes and the environment; the chemical and steady isotope fingerprints of biological processes; the co-evolution of the stable Earth, its oceans, ambiance, biosphere, and climate; the formation of fossil fuels and ore deposits; and the situations, timing, and rates of physical and organic processes on the Earth and different planets.
On-farm banking has the promise of making the best use of the greatest quantity of land doable while rising the reliability and resiliency of California’s groundwater provide,” says EESA scientist Peter Nico, a soil and environmental biogeochemist.
Research might handle: 1) inorganic and/or natural geochemical processes occurring at or close to the Earth’s surface now and in the past, and across the broad spectrum of interfaces ranging in scale from planetary and regional to mineral-floor and supramolecular; 2) the function of life within the transformation and evolution of Earth’s geochemical cycles; 3) surficial chemical and biogeochemical programs and cycles, together with their modification by environmental change and human activities; four) low-temperature aqueous geochemical processes; 5) mineralogy and chemistry of earth materials; 6) geomicrobiology and biomineralization processes; and 7) medical mineralogy and geochemistry.
