Join us for Tuesday Talks @ the University Libraries, an exciting lecture series that explores the wide ranging research interests at the University of Arizona.

Joaquin Ruiz, Dean, UA College of Science and Professor of Geochemistry, will deliver a lecture titled "Chemical Evolution of the Earth."  Ruiz's research focuses on the use of radiogenic and heavy stable isotopes to study the evolution of the crust and mantle through time, the genesis of ore deposits, paleogeography, and environmental and archeological problems.
