Alan M. Seltzer

I'm a geoscientist who primarily studies noble gases as quantitative tracers of physical processes in & between the atmosphere, ocean, hydrosphere, and solid earth.

I am currently a postdoctoral scholar at Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, where I have been since Fall 2019. I earned my PhD in 2019 at Scripps Institution of Oceanography, where I studied dissolved noble gas isotopes in paleogroundwater from Southern California and in seawater from the deep North Pacific as tracers of past hydroclimate change and air-sea gas exchange, respectively.

Whether you're interested in collaborating scientifically or you've accidentally stumbled upon this site (e.g. by googling "dissolved gases in seltzer water") but have thoughts about He, Ne, Ar, Kr, Xe, or Rn, please don't hesitate to get in touch!
