Project Observations and modeling of the C system dynamics at Palmyra Atoll: In support of the development of management strategies for ocean acidification impacts in the tropics
Using modern Monte Carlo Markov chain techniques to generate posterior distributions on the space of transformations on manifolds, we are discovering the geometric features predictive of back pain using high resolution imagery.
I am working to measure high precision (better than 5% uncertainties) 206Pb/238U ages on natural apatites. Trace element concentrations in apatites include Li, Cl, S, F, Mg, Fe, Sc, Y, REE, Hf, Th, and U, and are reproducible to better than 5% (1sigma). I have been working with several groups to analyze natural apatites, as well as Jonathan Payne's group analyzing trace elements in conodonts.
