Johannes Scheffler – Ph.D. student, Memorial University
U-Series radioisotope dating at submarine hydrothermal systems
Johannes’ research at MUN focuses on different U-series disequilibrium geochronology at submarine hydrothermal systems. He will be refining the application of gamma spectrometry as a dating method and comparing the methods utilizing mass-spectrometry.
Johannes received his B.Sc. in Chemistry and his M.Sc. in Mineralogy and Materials Science at Leipzig University. During his M.Sc. studies, he spent an exchange semester at the University of Bergen, Norway, where he debuted in seafloor hydrothermal research.
