Nanotechnology Used to Study Environment

Abstract:
Researchers Glenn Waychunas and Carl Steefel are using techniques that allow them to study the environment at the nanoscale as part of the new Center for Environmental Kinetics Analysis (CEKA) program, based at Pennsylvania State University.

The goal of the program is to gain insight into the kinetics, or rates, of reactions that occur at the earthís surface using a nanoscale approach that better models what happens in the real world as opposed to in the lab.
