Organic (bio)geochemistry

By applying a wide range of high-end analytical techniques such as (pyrolysis) gas chromatography mass spectrometry and liquid chromatography mass spectrometry we aim to better understand key Earth systems at a molecular level. Particular areas of interest include the effects of a warming climate on carbon cycling in the Eurasian Arctic region and UK upland environments, the role of organic substrates in the mobilization of other elements (such as As and Se) in aquifer systems and soils as well as fungi in the decomposition of macromolecular organic matter such as lignin and cellulose and the preservation of original organic materials in the fossil record (particularly in soft tissue material). Find out more at the web pages of the Organic Geochemsitry Group.
