Center for the Geochemical Analysis of the Global Environment


GAGE faculty capitalize on the rapidly advancing tools in geochemistry to more accurately characterize changes in Earth’s environments. Research foci include: i) isotopic and molecular approaches to understanding the modern carbon cycle, ii) quantitative reconstruction of past environmental changes to reveal links between components of the global climate system, and iii) documenting the processes in the geomorphic system that result in large-scale landscape evolution and the rates at which those processes act. The active participation of graduate and undergraduate students is encouraged and ensured through formal course offerings, the development of the Carbon, Climate and Society Initiative IGERT program for graduate education, and access to specialized research facilities and employment opportunities.
