About the Authors
  • This volume documents the contributions of the Carnegie Institution's Geophysical laboratory over a century of research dedicated to learning about the Earth. Areas of interest range from studying mineral formation beneath the surface to searching for the origins of life, and exploring space to study the chemical evolution of the interstellar medium. Field work has taken researchers from active volcanoes to ocean floors in the course of global mapping expeditions.
