College of Earth, Ocean, & Environment
My interests cover a wide range of areas including redox reactions in the environment, trace element speciation in marine waters and sediments including metal-ligand complexes, biogeochemical processes in marine environments, application of molecular orbital theory to geochemical processes, in situ electrochemistry and microelectrode technology. Our group also emphasizes research that interfaces chemistry with biology with the view that chemistry drives biology.

Current research projects under the direction of Dr. George Luther cover a range of topics in the area of oceanography and chemistry.
Oceanographer Dr. Geoge Luther has led expeditions to hydrothermal vents for pyrite research
In 2003, UD researchers participated in an international expedition explore the suboxic zone of the Black Sea.
Dr. Luther teaches courses in the areas of marine studies (MAST) and chemistry (CHEM). Click image above for details.
