Udo Fehn's primary research focus is the movement of fluids in the earth's crust, with an emphasis on dating and tracing studies. Current research topics include the study of volcanic fluids associated with subduction zones in order to detect the origin and history of volatiles in arc volcanoes and the tracing and dating of fluids in gas hydrates in order to determine the origin of methane in these large hydrocarbon deposits found at continental margins. In addition, he is involved in the application of cosmogenic isotopic systems for the understanding of geothermal systems and in the tracing of releases from nuclear reprocessing plants.
