Earth Dynamics Observatory (EDO)

EDO supports the UA space sciences platform with a downward-looking view to Earth, specializing in satellite remote sensing to monitor and predict changes to the Earth system and inform hazards mitigation and national security in the face of natural disasters, a changing climate, and other environmental stresses.

Hydrobiogeochemistry Research Group

The Hydrobiogeochemistry Research Group's primary focus is the elemental and isotopic chemistry of surface waters, groundwater, saline fluids, and natural gas to constrain the sources of solutes, residence times and flowpaths of fluids and gas in the subsurface, and water-rock-microbial interactions. Activities include extensive field sampling, laboratory analysis, and geochemical and hydrologic modeling.
