Dr. Sigurður Reynir Gíslason

Short Bio

I got my PhD at Johns Hopkins University. I am a research professor at the University of Iceland where I and my PhD students and postdocs study water/rock, water/gas and water/biomass interactions by field and laboratory experiments. I am the vice president of the European Association of Geochemistry (eag.eu.com) and the chair of CarbFix, an international initiative to store carbon in basaltic rocks (carbfix.com).
My main scientific contributions are 1) measuring the chemical and physical erosion rates of basaltic terrains and their role in the global carbon cycle, 2) quantifying the carbon storage potential of basaltic rocks, 3) measurement of the dissolution rates and dissolution mechanisms of volcanic glasses and minerals and 4) assessing the environmental pressure from volcanic eruptions.
