Adam C. Maloof



Adam Maloof joined the faculty in 2006. Research in Maloof's Earth history group relies on original field observations, at the scale of maps, rock outcrops, and thin sections.

The group's current focus involves using sedimentary and volcanic rocks to extract information about Earth's ancient magnetic field and the relative motion of continents, perturbations to the global carbon cycle, and the coevolution of life and climate.
