Dan Asael is a PhD student at the Institute of Earth Sciences at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem, Israel, supervised by Prof. Alan Matthews and Dr. Mira Bar-Matthews. His research deals with copper stable isotope fractionation at low temperature geological systems, where he found that redox reactions play an important role. His EGU poster shows that a fluid speciation approach for interpreting copper isotopic compositions (presented in detail at Asael et al., 2009, Chemical Geology) can also be applied to other similar isotopic systems such as Mo and Cr.
