Craig Bethke has stepped down from teaching in the Department of Geology, and now devotes full-time efforts toward his geochemical software development company located right here in Champaign-Urbana. Many geochemists and environmental professionals have used The Geochemist's Workbench™ software to help address questions related to aqueous chemistry and microbial activity. TheGeochemist's Workbench™ web site can be found at:
