Institute of Geosciences

The Institute of Geosciences

The Institute of Geosciences has a focus on “bio-geo-interactions” investigating the processes governing (hydro)geochemical alteration and element mobility. This includes activity of microorganisms involved in hydrogeochemical processes such as mineral precipitation/dissolution, contaminant degradation, sequestration or mobilization, and weathering and the modeling of these processes, to understand interactions of microbes with rocks and minerals. The institute recruited groups in the field of mineralogy, hydro¬geology, and in computational environmental systems (with UFZ, Leipzig).
