Greg Hirth was a scientist in the department of Geology and Geophysics. He used his understanding of the physical properties of rocks to study earth's processes, ranging from melt migration to hydrothermal alteration to oceanic earthquakes. As a Fellow, he investigated interactions between cracking in the oceanic crust and biogeochemical processes.
The Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution is dedicated to research and education to advance understanding of the ocean and its interaction with the Earth system, and to communicating this understanding for the benefit of society. Learn more »
