My Goldschmidt

Role functions

Details for: Robina Shaheen

I am physical chemist and use oxygen triple, sulfur quadruple isotopes and concomitant isotope anomalies to understand chemical and photo-chemical processes in the atmosphere. The isotopic signature preserved in rocks, ice and aerosols allows me to understand intricate interactions between atmosphere-hydrosphere-geosphere and biosphere. I have used ALH84001 (the most famous meteorite once cosidered to carry relics of life from Mars) and NWA70034 (Black Beauty) to constraint hydrosphere and CO2 cycle on Mars ~ 4.2 billion years ago. Meteorites are amazing gifts of nature to curious minds and I enjoy revealing the mysteries preserved in those rocks. I use sulfur and oxygen isotope anomalies to understand the hydrosphere and atmosphere interactions on earth and how high resolution record can shine light on the coupling between all spheres (atmo-hydro-geo-bio) as each one leaves its isotopic fingerprints in the aerosols that are transported to the stratosphere and preserved in the ice core records.
