Stan Hart is a scientist emeriitus in the department of Gology and Geophysics. He uses the geochemistry of magma erupted from oceanic volcanoes as a window into Earth's deeper regions. His research ranges from understanding the dynamics and evolution of the earth, to study of how submarine volcanism interacts with the oceans, and how it controls ocean chemistry. As a fellow, he invoked a broad multi-disciplinary study of the active Samoan submarine volcano, Vailulu`u, involving investigators from around the globe.
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 »
