2021 Physical Sciences

My name is Sigurður (Siggi) Reynir Gíslason, I received my PhD in geochemistry from the Johns Hopkins University 1985. I am a research professor at the University of Iceland. My research group has focused on field and laboratory experiments related to mineral storage of CO2 in basaltic rocks as well as the chemical and physical erosion rates of basaltic terrains and their role in the global carbon cycle. I am the past president (2021-2022) of the European Association of Geochemistry, and a co-founder of the Carbfix project.
