Geoffrey is a Research Full Professor in the Institute of Marine Science, CFOS at UAF. He specializes in low- and high-temperature geochemistry, hydrogeology, borehole fluid samplers, and undersea instrumentation. Professor Wheat recently developed the Multi-Temperature Fluid Sampler (MTFS), is a syringe-style fluid sampler that employs thermal response of shape memory alloys. Multiple samples may be taken at varying temperature ranges, with applications in scientific research and petroleum discovery.
