Back to School
The Computational Geofluids group is learning some new tricks this semester. I've decided to take a course in fluid inclusions analysis alongside my graduate students, Wu Hao and Rick Jayne. And we're fortunate to be learning from University Distinguished Professor, Robert J. Bodnar. This laboratory method is a terrific complement to our numerical modeling methods because fluid inclusion assemblages preserve the temperature and pressure history of natural and engineered geological fluid systems. Today we learned how to heat a fluid inclusion to find its homogenization temperature - the pictures shown here are Dr. Bodnar working with Wu Hao (top) and Rick Jayne (bottom) on the heating stage.
