Chunfang Cai
General status: He received a M.S. degree (1990) in petroleum geology from Yangtze University and a Ph.D. (2000) in fluid geochemistry in Institute of Geology and Geophysics, Chinese Academy of Sciences.

Research Areas

Research Interests:
His main interests include effect of hydrothermal fluid on reservoir quality, thermochemical and bacterial sulphate reduction in petroleum-bearing basins and sandstone-type uranium deposits, application of organic sulfur isotopes to petroleum-source rock correlation and to determine if BSR- or TSR- derived sulfides were incorporated into petroleum.
