Welcome to the homepage of the Isotope Geochemistry group!
Welcome to the homepage of the Isotope Geochemistry Group. The main focus of our work is the geochemical evolution of the Earth and its oceans using non-traditional and radiogenic isotopes. Mantle dynamics, plate tectonics and mass transfer are processes which have shaped our earth and are currently influencing the environment through volcanic eruptions, earth quakes, tsunamis and climate change. Detailed information about mass transfer and recycling processes will improve our understanding for the causes of natural disaster and Earth´s surface changes. In addition, understanding earth system behaviour during past environmental changes is essential for future climate change predictions. Remarkable events in Earth history such as extreme transitions between icehouse and greenhouse, the biggest mass extinction and global ocean acidification provide an excellent opportunity in understanding past environmental change and predicting future climate change.
