Geochemistry RESEARCH at Texas Tech UNIversity

Researchers in geochemistry in the Department of Geosciences is diverse and occurs across a spectrum of related disciplines. In the department you will find ongoing research in experimental aqueous geochemistry, the geochemical evolution of igneous and metamorphic systems, stable isotopic studies of vertebrate and invertebrate fossils, and the application of geochemical analysis to understanding of water-rock interactions in aquifers.

There are three broadly defined research groups in the department, for which more information can be found at the follow links:

Faculty members in the Geochemistry group include:

Research is conducted using both in house laboratory facilities, including:

In addition to the 'in-house' facilities faculty and students regularly utilize the The Imaging Center of Texas Tech University, a laboratory that houses TEM, SEM, EBSD and related instruments for image analysis and microscopy.


Faculty also participate in the teaching of the undergraduate and graduate courses.
