Application of Synchrotron Based X-ray Absorption Spectroscopy Techniques to the Geoscience Field Research project
Hesterberg, Dean L


We develop techniques to apply advanced analytical techniques, specifically X-ray absorption spectroscopy and X-ray imaging to determine chemical species of various elements in complex geochemical systems such as soils and waste materials. This project is a "Science without Borders" grant funded by the Brazilian government, and my role is to train students and faculty on the use of synchrotron techniques in soil science, agricultural sciences, and environmental sciences.
