Environmental Sciences

Elaine and James Magyar
Our environmental science research involves the application of instrumental methods including atomic absorption spectroscopy, UV-Vis spectroscopy, fluorescence, and GC-MS to probe environmental questions such as the relationship between the pH of natural waters, dissolved organic material, and metal speciation or the concentration of anthropogenic organic contaminants like phthalates, synthetic hormones, or pesticides in natural waters, soil, or food samples.
