This is the homepage of Professor John C. Ayers. As a geochemist I study the interactions between water, rocks and minerals from the earth’s surface to deep in the upper mantle, both in the laboratory and field. I am also conducting research on the sustainable use of natural resources. Currently I am chair of the Earth and Environmental Sciences Department at Vanderbilt University.
