Keywords: isotopes, sea water, carbon cycle, paleoclimate

Research Interests:
Dr. Veizer's work has five directions: (1) theoretical and practical development of chemical and isotopic techniques for studies of diagenesis in carbonates, (2) development of isotopic curves for past seawater, (3) development of the quantitative concepts of recycling for the terrestrial exogenic system, (4) quantification of biogeochemical cycles in riverine systems and (5) climate evolution on geological times
