Gilbert Hanson

      
       gilbert.hanson@sunysb.edu 

      Degrees:
      B.A., University of Minnesota
      Ph.D., University of Minnesota

      Interest:
      Professor Hanson's main research interests in geochemistry and isotope geology are: The use of major and trace elements, radiogenic isotopes, and radiometric dating for evaluating processes that contributed to the evolution of the crust. The development of new geochronological approaches for U-Pb dating of metamorphic and sedimentary minerals; and the application of major and trace element and isotope systems to groundwater, soil and environmental studies particularly those relating to the geology of Long Island. Look at his web site for more details of current and past research.

Jennie Munster

jmunster@notes2.cc.sunysb.edu

Degrees: 
B.S. Geology, U.C. Santa Cruz, California
M.S. Geosciences, Stony Brook University, New York

Interest:
Jennie is interested in understanding non-point sources of nitrate and perchlorate contamination in groundwater using geochemical tracers such as boron isotopes and Cl, Br concentrations. In addition she is measuring nitrate concentrations under maintained turfgrass sites to understand how these concentrations change as a function of fertilizer type and soil/site properties. Read more about her research here.

Xuan (Sunny) Xu

xuxu@ic.sunysb.edu

Degrees:
B.S. Geology, Peking University, China
M.S. Geology, Peking University, China

Interest:
Sunny is studying a septic tank/cesspool plume. She is interested in understanding how the nitrate speciation and redox conditions change in the plume as well as understanding the geometry of the plume as it moves through the groundwater. She has some exciting and perplexing results. Learn about them here.
