Scope of theme:
Fundamentals of how aqueous geochemical processes (including those mediated by microorganisms) affect water resources. Water interacts with minerals, soils, sediments, and rocks. The acquisition, mobility and transport of elements and isotopes in water provide valuable signatures to track water cycles at regional and global scales, and the studies of geochemical processes and reactions are also essential for development of remediation technologies for water contaminants.
