Jennifer McIntosh, Associate Professor of Hydrology and Atmospheric Sciences, is a Co-PI on a new $1 million W.M. Keck Foundation grant with UA Professor Peter Reiners (Geosciences) to study subsurface fluid-rock systems.  With the three-year grant, Reiners, McIntosh, and other team members will integrate geologic, geochemical, geochronologic and hydrogeologic observations to develop a more integrated, interdisciplinary understanding of subsurface fluid-rock systems. Prior to this, most approaches studying subsurface interactions looked only at parts of the system in isolation. Their work will focus on the Paradox Basin, located mostly in eastern Utah and western Colorado. For full details, see the original article published by UANews.org. Congratulations, Jen!
