McCorkle, Daniel Department Chair, Geology & Geophysics


Benthic geochemistry: pore water and solid phase studies of organic matter decomposition, calcium carbonate dissolution, and trace metal remobilization. Ocean paleochemistry: calibration studies of benthic foraminiferal shell chemistry, and isotopic and elemental estimates of changes in ocean circulation and the oceanic carbon cycle. Marine biomineralization: laboratory and culture-based studies of calcification by corals, mollusks, and foraminifera, and of the response of calcification to the uptake of fossil fuel carbon dioxide by the ocean (ocean acidification). Land-sea groundwater interactions: chemical and isotopic studies of groundwater discharge into estuaries and the coastal ocean.
