General Academic & Research Interests
Kurt Kyser has held a cross-appointment in the School of Environmental Studies since 2002. His research focuses on using an integrated approach to understanding the interactions between fluids and rocks throughout the history of the earth, with particular emphasis on interactions in the present environment. In 1997, Kurt established the Queen's Facility for Isotope Research (QFIR) which offers isotopic analysis of elements extracted from carbonates, silicates, sulfates, sulfides, phosphates, waters, and organic matter. For additional information, please view the website of the Isotope Lab http://geol.queensu.ca/isotope_lab/
Areas of Potential or Present Thesis/Project Supervision
Isotope geochemistry; origin and chemical evolution of the earth; mass spectroscopy; evolution of fluids in basins; low-temperature geochemistry; geochronology; environmental geochemistry; fluid-rock interaction.
