Geochemistry

The Geochemistry faculty study a wide range of processes and interactions, including products of large-scale Earth differentiation, such as the composition, evolution and age of the mantle and core, the formation and evolution of oceanic and continental crust, interactions between the geochemical environment (soil, water, air) and human health, fundamental questions involving the oceans and continental water systems, global geochemical cycles involving the atmosphere, oceans and Earth's interior, natural and engineered methods for carbon capture and storage, and using a wide range of geochemical archives to understand how and why the ocean and climate have changed at timescales ranging from seasons to millions of years. The faculty has developed strong collaborations with Columbia University engineers, biologists, public health researchers and American Museum of Natural History petrologists, planetary geologists and paleontologists.

My research interests involve the application of major elements, trace elements and isotopes to investigate the interface between climate, biogeochemistry, and the environment. I am particularly interested in the tropics, and my recent projects have included stable isotope (dD) geochemistry in Ethiopia, redox (Fe, Cr, U) variability in Indonesia, and productivity and dust (231Pa/230Th, 232Th, d15N) fluctuations in the Central Equatorial Pacific. In my upcoming work, I will investigate the relationship between volcanism and global climate change at orbital timescales by tracking changes in hydrothermal vent activity as recorded in marine sediment cores from the Juan de Fuca Ridge.

Fields of interest: 

Volcanology, Igneous Petrology, Geochemistry

I have broad interests in the fields of volcanism, magmatism, and tectonics. My work in these fields covers several topics that largely fit into two areas. First, I examine the P-T-X-t path of magmas prior to eruption, which I approach using solubility barometers, crystal-melt thermometers, and diffusion chronometers. Second, I investigate the origin and role of volatiles in magmatic systems. My favorite tool is melt inclusions, which provide a unique means for directly measuring the pre-eruptive volatile contents of mama. Central to my work is the chemical and textural analysis of macrocrysts, at both the individual crystal and population scales, and integrating my results with those of other disciplines (e.g., seismology, remote sensing).

Fields of interest: CO2 capture and storage via in situ mineral carbonation in peridotite and basalt; melting and reactive melt transport in the Earth's mantle and lower crust; igneous processes in forming the Earth's crust; density instabilities, ductile deformation and evolution of the lower crust; subduction zone geotherms; and the mechanisms for intermediate depth earthquakes.
 
Recently, I have added mineral carbonation and hydration in peridotite and mafic rocks to my research program. This is a reactive transport problem, very similar to the work I've done on reactive transport of melt in the upper mantle and lower crust, there are fantastic field areas where active, ongoing mineral carbonation and hydration can be observed, and the physical mechanisms that control key processes are not well understood. We are focusing on understanding processes in natural systems, particularly “reaction driven cracking”, with relevance to engineered geological capture and storage of CO2, stimulation of geothermal reservoirs, in situ mining, and extraction of hydrocarbon resources from tight formations.
 
For decades, my primary research interest has been in the genesis and evolution of the Earth's crust in the ocean basins, in arcs, and in continents. I approach this topic from the perspective that reactions between melt and rock during transport through the upper mantle are as important as melting, mixing, and crystal fractionation processes in producing different crustal bulk compositions in different tectonic settings. I’ve been fascinated by the stark compositional difference between oceanic and continental crust, and in my research I have gravitated toward end-member examples of magmatic processes: oceanic spreading ridges, and subduction-related volcanic arcs such as the Aleutians where the composition of average lavas and exposed plutonic rocks closely resembles continental crust.  In an ongoing effort, I've tried to develop a general theory that explains how reactive melt transport varies along different geothermal gradients, with, 1. mineral dissolution and focusing of flow into high permeability channels in hot, upwelling mantle, 2. diffuse flow where there is a low melt flux into conductively cooled, shallow mantle, and, 3. hydrofracture where high melt flux and crystallization due to cooling clog porosity, leading to ponding of magma and increasing melt pressure. I’ve also become very interested in gravitational instabilities that can remove dense lithologies from the base of the crust, and transport buoyant subducted sediments and felsic igneous rocks from subduction zones back into the crust, and I hope to pursue investigations of metasediments in lower crustal granulite terrains: how do they get down there?
 
In studying layered intrusions and lower oceanic crust, I’ve tried to understand a few of the many possible mechanisms for forming both compositional and modal layering in gabbros, via injection of layer parallel sills, and via sudden changes in pressure that can modify the assemblage of minerals precipitating from a cooling magma. This research led to general ideas about formation of oceanic crust, via a “sheeted sills” mechanism in which the lower crust crystallizes from many small sills, injected at depths throughout the crust. This end-member process stands in contrast to the “gabbro glacier” hypothesis, in which all oceanic plutonic rocks crystallize in a single, shallow melt lens and undergo ductile flow downward and outward to “fill” the lower crust. A related issue is the mode of cooling of the oceanic lower crust; via conduction with limited, diffuse fluid flow, or via rapid, focused hydrothermal convection. Trying to quantify and constrain these hypotheses, and to determine which processes predominate in different tectonic settings, has motivated a lot of research over the past 15 years.
I've been very fortunate to work with a large number of tolerant geophysicists (Jack Whitehead, Einat Aharonov, Steve Holbrook, Marc Spiegelman, Greg Hirth, Jun Korenaga, Matthew Jull, and others) who have led me into the world of geodynamics. I am grateful to them all, particularly Greg Hirth, with whom I have been able to pursue interdisciplinary studies.
 
Finally, not that long ago, I was a founding partner of Dihedral Exploration, mineral exploration consultants specializing in field work requiring technical climbing skills. Searching for ore deposits took me to British Columbia, Alaska and Greenland. I've recently started teaching a new course, Earth Resources for Sustainable Development, which covers some of that field, as well as energy resources, water, soil and fertilizer. I’ve been writing general articles and giving public presentations on this topic

Geochemistry, isotope geology, how the earth works

The Earth is an incredibly dynamic planet. Throughout its four and a half billion year history, magmas generated in the mantle have been creating crust, which in turn has been mixed back into the mantle by subduction. Formation of the continents and the core have resulted major chemical differentiation of the planet. The combination of chemical fractionations and the decay of radioactive elements in rocks impart "fingerprints" that we use to understand how these processes work, and to determine the timing of events.

These fingerprints are among the most versatile geological tracers. Their applicability extends across the spectrum of the Earth sciences and is limited only by our creativity and imagination. Among the most exciting aspects of isotope geochemistry is that we are neither "hard-" nor "soft" rockers, neither "Quaternary-" nor "Archean" geologists.

At Lamont, we are using chemical and isotopic tracers in studies ranging from deep Earth processes and evolution to Quaternary climate change. Our igneous studies include the history of continental growth as well magma formation processes at ocean ridges, ocean islands, and island arcs. Low-temperature studies include tracing element fluxes in the present-day oceans and through time, and quantifying the timing of climate change through dating of sediments only thousands of years old. The next decade promises to be the most exciting yet as new analytical techniques will extend our arsenal of isotopic tracers.

I found Lamont to be an amazingly exciting place to be a Ph.D. student, and this is why I returned as a faculty member when the opportunity arose. Its combination of great intellectual breadth and range of resources and friendliness make a great environment for research and education.

My research is focused on magmas associated with the plate tectonic cycle, at both divergent and convergent plate margins. My main contributions have been to the understanding of: * Magma generation: quantifying the roles of decompression, temperature and water in driving mantle melting * Crustal recycling at subduction zones: providing global flux estimates of marine sediment subducted into oceanic trenches, and tracing sediment geochemically from the seafloor to arc volcanoes * Water content of magmas, and the effects on magma evolution, mantle and slab temperature, and eruptive vigor.

My tools are geochemical, field work has taken me to Nicaragua and the Aleutians, and to sea. I have served on the MARGINS steering committee, the editorial boards of Geology and Earth & Planetary Science Letters, the EarthScope Advisory Committee, as co-chief scientist on Leg 185 of the Ocean Drilling Program, co-lead-author of the SZ4D Vision Document, and one of the writing team for the NAS ERUPT Report.

In 2012 she was named a MacArthur Foundation Fellow,  in 2013 elected into the National Academy of Sciences, and in 2016 the American Academy of Arts and Sciences.

Some of my projects include:

  • Magmatism and Mantle Lithosphere across the Basin and Range
  • Volatiles In arc magmas and mantle xenoliths
  • Diffusion clocks of volcanic processes
  • Subduction fluxes of volatile and stable isotope tracers
