Welcome to the Applied Geochemistry group Wiki.
The Applied Geochemistry group (AGg) in the Department of Geoscience employs a wide variety of physical, chemical, isotopic, and modeling techniques to study aspects of the water cycle and to trace the fate of anthropogenic carbon, nitrogen, and sulfur in surface and subsurface environments.
Current Research projects focus on environmental research, research related to sustainable energy supplies, and research at the interface between energy and the environment. :
- Energy-related Research
- Environmental Research
- Research at the Interface between Energy and the Environment
The goal of our research is to enhance sustainable practices in energy supply, forestry, and agriculture, while minimizing the impact on terrestrial and aquatic environments.
