Marine Biogeochemistry

In-situ measurements at the seafloor

The research unit Marine Geosystems develops and applies advanced technologies to determine fluxes across the sediment-water interface and the biogeochemical turnover in marine sediments. These developments are performed together with engineers and technicians from the TLZ and small and medium-sized companies specialized in marine technologies.
