Sediment Geochemistry

We are interested in transformations, fluxes, and cycles of elements in the ocean and investigate the diverse geochemical aspects that shape marine ecosystems.

We analyze the chemical composition of rocks, solid sediments, water column, pore fluids, and particles that trickle from the ocean's surface to the seabed.

We aim to shed light into the livelihood of microorganisms and their important role in element cycles of modern Earth, and we learn about palaeoenvironments from the chemical code that is stored in the record of marine sediments.
