Welcome to the Multiscale Applied Physics Lab for Earth Science (MAPLES).

Our mission is to decipher “how things work” on this dynamic planet Earth by using and establishing geophysical, quantitative, and computational methods in fields and laboratories. Our current projects range from establishing monitoring scheme of in situ geomicrobiological process and chemical exchange in different spheres (atmosphere, hydrosphere, lithosphere, and biosphere), particularly focusing on natural carbon sequestration processes, to advancing our knowledge about volcanism and magmatism that formed ocean basins, and to investigating planetary processes, such as geomagnetic field behavior over time.
