AGU Honors Chanton, Farrington

  • Tuesday, 11 August 2015

Dr. Jeff Chanton and Dr. Allan Clarke have been chosen by the American Geophysical Union (AGU) as the 2015 AGU Fellows. Both professors, from Florida State University in Tallahassee, FL, have made exceptional contributions to Earth and space sciences in the eyes of their peers, this respect is shared by section and focus group committees.

Dr. Chanton and his lab studies emissions and cycling of the carbon gasses methane and carbon dioxide. Chanton is interested in methane gas hydrates, estimated as large reservoirs of fossil fuels to be mined.

Dr. John Farrington is a GoMRI board member and professor at Wood Hole Oceanographic Institute. His research interests include marine organic geochemistry, biogeochemistry of organic chemicals of environmental concern, and the interaction between science and policy.

Podcasts from The Loop

The Loop is a series of podcasts which take an in depth look at C-IMAGE research. Partnering with Mind Open Media reporters Ari Daniel Shapiro and David Levin, our researchers share the importance of their studies and how they help our understanding of oil spills. David and Ari have produced eight podcasts and have more in the queue. The podcasts are linked below. Plug in and learn about our research!
