Integrated Research Studies

Task Objectives

Environmental challenges associated with understanding mineral systems, processes, and climatic factors require an integrated approach. Approaches may range in scale from the study of minerals under highly controlled laboratory conditions to methods applied to complex large field sites and geologic features. This task allows for investigation and exploration of new applications, methodology, and research directions that require integratation of geologic, geochemical, and geophysical information for traditional and nontraditional mineral resource and mineral environmental applications. Topics include mineral carbonation as a means to mitigate negative effects of global climate change; petrophysical properties related to environmental rock properties; effects of volcanic processes on mineral alteration, identification of geologic features in ice-covered environments, metal sequestration in salts on playa, and integrated 3-D maps and interpretations of the formation of mineral deposits.

This task has been divided into the following Subtasks:
