Sujoy Mukhopadhyay’s research group is focused on understanding the formation and evolution of habitable planets including feedbacks and linkages between processes operating within the deep interior and the planet’s surface. Through innovative developments in measuring noble gases in a variety of Earth materials, combined with geochemical modeling, the research group investigates science questions related to planet formation, volatile evolution of terrestrial planets, formation of atmospheres on terrestrial planets, early Earth conditions, geochemical evolution of the Earth’s mantle, magma degassing, and volatile exchange between the Earth’s surface and the solid earth. The inert nature of noble gases makes them unique, and particularly powerful probes, for investigating these research topics.
