Recorded in the bottom of The Grand Canyon with Dr. Laurie Crossey. Laurie is a professor of geochemistry at the University of New Mexico. Her interests are in interaction of rock, water, and organic materials: clastic diagenesis, aqueous geochemistry, and organic chemistry. Her recent research in the Grand Canyon and Rio Grande rift has involved the geochemistry of the present hydrologic systems, and their paleohydrology as recorded by travertines. She received her BA from Colorado College in 1977, her MA from Washington University in 1979, and her PhD from University of Wyoming in 1985. She has been at UNM since 1986.
