Aquatic 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.
Swiss Polar Day
The Swiss Polar Day gathers the Swiss scientific community around international keynote speakers active in the Arctic, Antarctic and high-altitude regions. Claudia Frey presented the plans of our new project "Greenmelt - Impact of Greenland Ice Melt on ocean productivity" taking part at the SPI organized expedition around Greenland "GLACE".
