Tengchong Hotsprings, Yunnan Province China

Stay tuned – I leave January 2nd for two weeks of reconnaisance and preliminary sampling of hotsprings in southwestern China!  I will be traveling with a team of researchers from UNLV, NAU, Montana State, San Francisco State, Ohio University, and the University of Georgia. We’ll be working with Chinese collaborators from Tongji University, China University of Geosciences – Beijing, and Yunnan University.

This is a highly-collaborative project with the aim of conducting integrated research into the geochemistry and geobiology of terrestrial hydrothermal systems.
