Geology professor, students present at national geophysical conference
Saugata Datta, assistant professor of geology, and students offered two presentations at the fall meeting of the American Geophysical Union from Dec. 5-9 in San Francisco.
Datta and his students were in the midst of more than 21,000 scientists to deliver research advances in two aspects of their research, one on geochemical signatures in CO2 sequestration and the other being on biogeochemistry of selenium in the environment.
The presentations were titled, "Geochemical and mineralogical characterization of the Arbuckle aquifer with laboratory flow cell experiments under supercritical conditions: Implications for CO 2 sequestration," and " Selenium Speciation and Mobilization in a Controlled Wetland System: Pariette Wetlands, Utah."
