Research and Teaching Interests

Researchers in Ariel Anbar's group use chemical concepts and approaches to study geological, chemical and biological processes that shape the Earth's surface environment and how they have changed through time. Study of these processes teaches us about the habitability of the Earth, the history of the environment and life, the effects of human activities on the environment, and the prospects for life beyond Earth. Their efforts center on the development and application of novel analytical techniques, particularly using mass spectrometry. Recently, we have been among the pioneers in using multiple-collector inductively coupled plasma mass spectrometry (MC-ICP-MS) to precisely measure mass-dependent variations in the isotopic compositions of transition metals, particularly iron and molybdenum. Work by Anbar's group and others documents that variations of 0.01 - 0.1 %/amu, once undetectable, are actually ubiquitous. Such measurements in natural samples, informed by laboratory experiments and theoretical studies, provide insights into the environmental chemistry of metals and the metal-centered interactions between organisms and their surroundings. Applied to the geologic record, such "metal stable isotope" studies provide information about metal biogeochemical cycles on the ancient Earth, environmental changes that perturbed these cycles, and biological activity in the distant past (Arnold et al., 2004).

Anbar's group plans to continue to explore the biogeochemistry of metals in the middle of the periodic table, using isotopic and other methods. They are especially interested in "metallomic" research that relates the distribution and isotopic composition of metals in nature to the demand for these metals by various metalloenzymes. New state-of-the-art analytical facilities, particularly in the W. M. Keck Foundation Laboratory for Environmental Biogeochemistry, make ASU an exceptional setting to pursue this research.
