Ruth C Heindel Dorothy & Thomas Jegla Assistant Professor of Environmental Studies Kenyon College heindel1 at kenyon.edu
I am an interdisciplinary earth scientist interested in biogeochemical cycling in cold regions. I use a wide range of field and analytical methods to investigate cold-regions aeolian processes and geomorphology, coupled biogeochemical cycles, biological soil crusts, and mineral weathering. My current research addresses the question of how the emission and deposition of atmospheric dust alters highly sensitive polar and alpine ecosystems.
