Plate tectonics, submarine groundwater discharge

College
College of Science

Biography
Viso's education includes a background in geology and oceanography, with an emphasis on plate tectonics. More recently he has become involved with researching fluid seepage through the seafloor. This work focuses on the links between land and sea through subterranean processes and has geological and water quality implications. Field approaches largely consist of geophysical methods such as multibeam echosounding and electrical resistivty measurements. These approaches are combined with geochemical methods undertaken by research colleagues.
