10/20/2011 - The Electrochemical Earth


4:00 PM - 5:00 PM
3656 Geology

Presented By:
Abby Kavner - Dept. Earth & Space Sciences, UCLA


Is the Earth an active fuel cell? Or is it corroding? This talk shows how electrochemical processes on Earth and planets may create a wide range of physical and chemical effects. Experiments and theory suggest that geo-electrochemical processes may generate specific isotope signatures describing electrochemical disequilibrium.
