Sustainable Carbon Emissions: The Geologic Perspective

March 7, 2016 @ 11:00 am - 12:00 pm

General Talk – Zandmer Distinguished Lecture Series 2016 

Dr. Don DePaolo, University of California, Berkeley
Monday, March 7, 2016
11:00AM – 12:00PM (MST)
Taylor Family Digital Library – Gallery Hall
University of Calgary

Don DePaolo received his Ph.D. in Geology from Caltech in 1978, and has been a professor at UCLA (1978-1988) and UC Berkeley (1988-present). He is currently the Class of 1951 Professor of Geochemistry at UC Berkeley, and also the Associate Laboratory Director for Energy Sciences at the Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory. He is a member of the US National Academy of Sciences and the American Academy of Arts and Sciences, and has received awards for research from the Geochemical Society, AGU, MSA, GSA and EAG. His interests are in the use of isotopic measurements as tracers and chronometers of Earth processes. Research interests include, in addition to carbon sequestration, mantle geochemistry, igneous and metamorphic processes, hydrothermal systems, sediment diagenesis, paleoceanography, weathering rates, and chemical hydrology. In 2009 he and a team of researchers from LBNL and cooperating institutions were awarded a five-year, $20M grant from the US/DOE to establish an Energy Frontier Research Center to study “Nanoscale Controls on Geologic CO2.” The Center was renewed in 2014. He has authored or co-authored more than 230 research papers which have been cited over 25,000 times.
