Erik Hauri Elected Geochemical Society Fellow

Erik Hauri
In the Fall of 2011, the IAVCEI Commission on the Chemistry of Volcanic Gases (CCVG) organized a workshop in cooperation with the Russian Academy of Sciences and its Institute for Volcanology and Seismology (RAS-IVS). Three days were dedicated to presentations on the state of the art analysis of volcanic gases and fluids for the purposes of calculating volatile fluxes of S, C, H, Cl, Br and others from volcanic areas. The remaining several days were spent in “Hands-On” mode on the volcanoes of Kamchatka, in which researchers went out into the field to compare and exchange information on sample collection and analysis protocols, while collecting samples of gases, fluids and melt inclusions from the Rodnikova geothermal area, and Mutnovsky and Gorely volcanoes.

The Geochemical Society (GS) and European Association of Geochemistry (EAG) elect Erik Hauri, a staff scientist at DTM, as a fellow.

This honorary title is given to an outstanding scientist who made a major contribution to the field of geochemistry. Hauri’s promotion to fellow is in recognition of his many important contributions to our understanding of the geochemistry and geochemical processes operating on Earth and the Moon.

Hauri received his Ph.D. in geochemistry from MIT in 1992. He is a member of the geochemistry & cosmochemistry group at DTM, where he works with DTM colleagues, postdocs and graduate students of collaborators to examine the processes associated with planetary origins and evolution, mantle convection, and the volcanic expression of chemical variability inside the Earth and the Moon. Many of his projects involve field work to collect samples, all of which involve state-of-the-art measurements in mass spectrometry.
