Traces in rocks indicate that the first life forms on Earth emerged almost 4 billion years ago. Since that time, geological and biological processes have been tightly linked. Their interactions result in the buildup of natural resources, regulate the carbon cycle, and control energy fluxes in the ocean. In the MARUM research field Geosphere-Biosphere Interactions, we study essential aspects of these three themes within the framework of national and international research projects.
