Lin Ma

Associate Professor

Geological Sciences

University of Texas at El Paso

My primary research focuses on understanding critical processes at our Earth’s surface, more specifically in natural waters and soils that are integral parts of the Earth’s near-surface layer, or the Critical Zone. My research approach is developing and using a variety of novel isotope tools to study the Critical Zone: to quantify soil formation rates, to trace water flow paths and solute sources, and to study cycles and pathways of various critical elements in the environments.
