Specialties of Torsten Vennemann:
Application of stable isotope fractionations between minerals, fluids and gases as potential monitors of the thermal and fluid evolution in high- and low-temperature environments, including ore deposits, sedimentary, metamorphic, and igneous rocks.
Isotopes as natural tracers for environmental (hydrologic processes, industrial contamination, archaeological applications) and paleoenvironmental/paleoclimatic changes.
