School of Earth, Society, and Environment
The Earth is a complex system in which the solid planet, the oceans, the atmosphere, and life (both human and non-human) interact in countless ways. In order to respond to the environmental challenges of our time, it is necessary to understand these interactions and interdependencies that transcend the boundaries of traditional academic disciplines. The School of Earth, Society, and Environment (SESE) brings the resources of the departments of Atmospheric Sciences, Geology, and Geography at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign to study the Earth System.
Uranium isotopes as indicators of uranium immobilization and remobilization in contaminated aquifer settings (2018-08-27)Tracking U immobilization through U(VI) reduction and mobilization induced by U(IV) oxidation using U concentrations alone is challenging, as groundwater transport, aquifer heterogeneity, and U(VI) adsorption can complicate ...
