Cathles, Lawrence

Earth and Atmospheric Sciences

Research Interests: Professor Cathles' current research focusses on (1) the response of the earth to the load redistributions that occurred over the last glacial cycle with applications to mantle viscosity, global temperature and sea level change, (2) chemical changes induced by subsurface fluids flowing across gradients in temperature, pressure, and salinity with applications to mineral deposits, geothermal energy, and mineralogical changes during oil field production, (3) nanoparticle tracer tracer methods with applications to flow characterization, and (4) issues related to shale gas extraction.
