stable isotopes

Brookshire, Jack

Assistant Professor
Land Resources and Environmental Sciences
Montana State University - Bozeman

My area of expertise is in biogeochemistry and ecosystem ecology. My research emphasizes nutrient
dynamics in forests, atmospheric chemistry, global change, watershed analysis, stable isotope analysis,
field experimentation, and modeling.

Dore, John

Associate Research Professor
Land Resources & Environmental Sciences
Montana State University - Bozeman

My research focuses on understanding physical and chemical influences on ecosystem structure and dynamics and associated feedback mechanisms. I am particularly interested in climate variability and its influence on biogeochemistry and the cycling of greenhouse gases.

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.

Hu, Jia

Assistant Professor
Montana State University

I have worked in many different ecosystems, from redwood and subalpine forests, to the alpine grasslands on the Tibetan Plateau. However, despite the large ecological and climatic differences among these different ecosystems, I have always been interested in coupling the carbon and water cycles within these systems. At the plant scale, we can couple the water and carbon cycles through measurements of plant water use efficiency; we can also couple these two fluxes at the ecosystem scale through measurements of ecosystem water use efficiency.
