(Dept. 6) Chemical analytics and biogeochemistry
Our research focuses on fundamental and applied research questions regarding the biogeochemical transformation of substances in aquatic interfaces (freshwater and wetlands) and of the carbon flux between terrestrial and aquatic ecosystems. This includes investigating greenhouse gas emissions from inland waters as well as developing and introducing in situ techniques for measuring matter flow in high temporal and/or spatial resolution. We also provide services for important parts of chemical analysis; implement measuring programmes for longterm experiments; and accompany PhD students in the analytical research involved in laboratory and field experiments.
