Soil Science and Biogeochemistry

Group picture

We are an interdisciplinary group of scientists with backgrounds in geography, geology, biology, ecology, agronomy, environmental science and analytical chemistry. We seek to understand how global climate change affects the multiple interactions of vegetation, soil, and the terrestrial carbon cycle. These processes are investigated with several complementary state-of-the-art biogeochemical methods in field and greenhouse experiments, combined with databases, modeling and upscaling approaches. Our teaching is research inspired and we aim to involve students early into practical projects.
