Research on the behavior of H2O in planetary regoliths and atmospheres. Recent work has included research on gaseous diffusion in cold planetary regoliths; thermal modeling of planetary surfaces; studies of the diurnal, seasonal, and climatic cycles of water on Mars; the rheology and evolution of the martian polar caps; the hydraulic response of groundwater to major seismic events; low-temperature hydrothermal convection; and large-scale groundwater transport.
