More about this group

Group leader: Professor Tim Elliott

The Geochemistry group uses fundamental chemical techniques to understand natural processes on a range of temporal and spatial scales, from single atoms on mineral surfaces and the environmental geochemistry of the modern Earth to the large-scale chemical structure of planets and the birth of the Solar System.

A key theme of the research group is the use of established and novel isotopic tracers to understand the nature and chronology of cycling between the major reservoirs of the Earth.  This activity is organised under the umbrella of the multi-departmental Bristol Isotope Group, using isotope facilities housed in the Department of Earth Sciences.

Another major focus of research is the application of spectroscopy, first-principles calculations and laboratory experiments to aqueous solutions and the mineral-solution interface. This work is done by the Aqueous and Environmental Geochemistry Group and their facilities.
