Theodore Bobik

Earth, Environmental, and Planetary Science


The overarching theme of Theodore Bobik's research is to increase the efficacy and scope of paleosol-derived paleoclimate proxies by untangling authigenic and catchment-derived geochemical signals. In his work, Theodore utilizes stable isotope analysis of authigenic clays and carbonates, trace elements, molecular weathering ratios, and multi-variable analysis of leaf wax n¬-alkanes to interpret whole soil profile trends in biogeochemical proxies.
