I would like to meet with the visitor 10:30-11am, but am available any
time between 10am-5pm on 2/4. Please let me know whether he would come
to my office (489 Dirac Science Library) or I need to meet him
somewhere. Although the visitor's hydrology is different from mine, but
it would be nice to have a lunch together with him for some science

> Seminar Title: Evolution of the Earth’s hydrologic cycle during the Phanerozoic
> This is a study that looks at how the distribution of water in the near surface hydrosphere has varied during the Phanerozoic (actually, the last 700 Ma). For example, we look at the effects of snowball Earth conditions on the water cycle, and examine the implications of not having a biosphere on the continents before about 400 Ma.

> Bob's research interests:
> What We Do: Researchers in the Fluids Research Group are concerned with the distribution, properties and role of fluids in planetary processes.
> Methods: Fluid inclusions provide the best source of information concerning the occurrence of fluids in natural samples. The distribution of fluids in the Earth and planetary systems is determined by studying fluid inclusions in earth materials and samples delivered to Earth from outer space.
> The properties of geologic fluids are determined through experimental and theoretical studies of model fluid systems. The experimental technique that is used most commonly in the Fluids Research Laboratory is the synthetic fluid inclusion technique.
> The role of fluids in geologic processes is studied by combining information obtained from natural fluid inclusions with PVTX data for model systems and with other geologic and geochemical information to interpret the results.
