NSF Collaborative Research

Project Title: Collaborative Research: Investigating how transient electrical and magnetic signals relate to changes in recharge-driven redox state and iron mineral transformations (NSF grant # 1742959, abstract here)

The focus of the project is to use geophysical methods, such as resistivity, self potential and magnetic susceptibility, as non invasive monitoring tools of subsurface bio-geochemical processes, as a result of hydrocarbon contamination. The chemical analysis, along with microbiological analysis, will support the geophysical data interpretation and will help develop the linkages between observations and processes.
