Gammons, Christopher

Geological Engineering
Montana Tech
Professional Summary: 

My primary research interests are in aqueous geochemistry applied to natural waters, including rivers, lakes, groundwater, and geothermal waters. I am particularly interested in the geochemistry of heavy metals and metalloids (As, Sb), the processes that form economic deposits of these metals, and the processes that disperse these metals in the weathering environment. Much of my recent research involves the application of stable isotopes of water, dissolved oxygen, inorganic carbon, and sulfur. Before coming to Montana Tech I spent many years performing solubility experiments at low and high temperature to generate new thermodynamic and kinetic data for water-rock interaction processes. At Montana Tech I teach three classes per semester, including the following: Physical Geology, Metallic Ore Deposits, Acid Rock Drainage, Geology of Montana, Hydrogeochemistry, Isotope Geochemistry, Field Hydrogeology, and Field Geology.
