Understand the Earth from the perspective of geochemistry
Radiogenic isotopes and geochronology
Utilizing radiogenic isotopes as natural tracers of sources and geological processes and also as geochronometers to determine the ages of rocks and geological events
Understanding how the Earth formed and how it has evolved through its history and also help constrain the geological processes that are operating on Earth today
Worked on a wide range of Earth and planetary materials including meteorites, igneous, metamorphic, and sedimentary rocks of all ages, modern sediments and volcanic rocks, and water samples. Vervoort is director of the Radiogenic Isotope and Geochronology Laboratory at WSU.
