Geochemical Adventures at Earth’s Surface

Dr. Xiao-Ming Liu , Associate Professor and Colin McMillan Fellow at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill.


Liu is a geochemist who studies the composition, structure, processes, evolution, and other aspects of the Earth. In this seminar, Xiaoming will take you on a geochemical adventure focusing on what her group has done over the past five years at UNC on Earth’s surface.Liu’s research group at UNC Chapel Hill focuses on understanding fundamental questions related to the origin and evolution of Earth, including 1) Chemical weathering of basalts, 2) weathering and its influence on the global carbon/silicon cycle and crustal evolution; 3) Evolution of Earth’s surface environments; 4). Geochemistry of fluid-rock interactions.
