The Seltzer Lab at WHOI

Our lab group specializes in applications of inert gases as quantitative tracers of physical processes in nature. Our current research spans a wide range in both space and time: from using noble gases tracers in the deep ocean to better understand large-scale changes in ocean ventilation in the past, present, and future, to constraining groundwater recharge and flow pathways, to simulating picosecond- and angstrom-scale interactions between dissolved gas atoms and water molecules that give rise to the isotopic signals we observe in nature.

We are committed to making our lab a welcoming, inclusive environment. To learn more about our commitment and current research opportunities, please check out the "Join the lab!" page.
