Profile

  • Researchers in Marine Geochemistry determine fluxes between sediment, water column, and sea-ice in the present and in the past.
  • The underlying (bio)geochemical processes are studied by in-situ and ex-situ measurements, including analysis of isotopes, organic components as well as sediment composition, and by computational modelling.
  • For these purposes, state-of-the-art techniques are applied and novel methods are developed.
  • This research helps establishing the relationship between ocean geochemistry and climate and its imprint on the sedimentary record.
