Brian Romans, Virginia Tech 241 Berthoud, 4-5PM Topic: Reconstructing Deep Ocean Circulation during Cenozoic Climate Transitions from the Marine Sediment Record Abstract: Ocean circulation plays a critical role in the Earth’s climate system through the storage and transfer of heat and carbon dioxide. The North Atlantic and Southern Ocean are of particular interest because these are regions where deep-water components of global circulation develop. Overall patterns and functioning of modern oceanic circulation is relatively well understood, but significant uncertainty remains about circulation…

Jennifer Druhan, University of Illinois 241 Berthoud, 4-5PM Topic: Isotopic Reactive Transport: Unraveling Biogeochemical Processes in Groundwater Systems Abstract: Water is a basic necessity for life, and exerts a primary control on virtually all geological, chemical and biological processes occurring at or near the Earth’s surface. Because these water-rock-life interactions take place at interfaces, both fluid composition and the physical and chemical structure of porous media must be treated as coevolving phenomena.  Such complex and interrelated processes can hinder both interpretation and…

Kurtis Burmeister, University of the Pacific 241 Berthoud Hall,  4-5PM Topic: Welcome to Jurassic Arc: Insights from a Remarkably Preserved Sierra Nevadan Remnant Abstract: The Sierra Nevada are best known for breath-taking exposures of granitic rocks in places like Yosemite Valley, Kings Canyon, and the Tahoe Basin. These rocks are part of the Sierra Nevada batholith, which is part of a massive granitic backbone that spans much of the length of western North America. These granitic rocks offer us interesting glimpses into how…

Dmitri Kulik, Paul Scherrer Institute, Switzerland 241 Berthoud, 4-5PM Topic: GEMS for Geochemical Modeling of Fluid-rock Interaction and Radioactive Waste Disposal Abstract: Geochemical systems usually consist of aqueous, gaseous and many possible mineral phases, including solid solutions and/or sorption. Their evolution often involves reactive transport phenomena, represented at any given time point by local- and partial equilibrium states, understanding and prediction of which requires computer-aided thermodynamic modeling. GEMS is a geochemical modeling software based on Gibbs Energy Minimization (GEM) and developed…
