Aquatic and Isotope Biogeochemistry (Prof. M. Lehmann)

Teaching and research activities of our group deal with biogeochemical processes and their isotope-geochemical signatures in aquatic systems and sedimentary environments. We are particularly interested in the biological cycling/transformation of nitrogenous compounds (and their isotopologues), methane, and organic matter in terrestrial aquatic environments and the ocean, as well as the use stable isotope and organic-geochemical indicators to reconstruct environmental conditions in the past.
