About The Author

At present, most of the work in my lab involves trace element studies, though we are also involved in some oil spill and sediment studies as well as examinations of methane and carbon dioxide. Over the years I have worked in many different areas of geochemistry ranging from sediment studies to radionuclide studies to studies of the oceanic carbon dioxide system. Thus, I am prepared to help students interested in most any sort of geochemically-oriented project.

Methane is an important 'greenhouse gas'; that is, a gas that plays a role in earth's heat balance and hence our climate. In fact, molecule for molecule, methane is more effective at trapping heat than carbon dioxide. Thus, although there is currently about 200 times more carbon dioxide in the atmosphere than methane, there is nonetheless keen interest in the scientific community to understand the sources and sinks of methane to the atmosphere. Dr. Alan M. Shiller has made this...
