The re­ac­tions that trans­form car­bon and other ele­ments at and within the ocean floor likely have a crit­ical im­pact on Earth-sys­tem pro­cesses, but they are in­com­pletely un­der­stood.

The RE­ACTOR team will gen­er­ate a new level of un­der­stand­ing of geo­sphere-bio­sphere in­ter­ac­tions in ocean-floor re­ac­tions and their global im­pact. We will elu­cid­ate and dis­sect key pro­cesses and their in­ter­play with bio­lo­gical com­munit­ies in a wide range of ocean-floor set­tings and hab­it­ats.

These aims make es­sen­tial con­tri­bu­tions to the Cluster’s over­arch­ing ob­ject­ive of de­term­in­ing the budgets of car­bon and other ele­ments across the ocean ­floor in­ter­face.
