Research group

The research group Soil organic matter dynamics and elemental cycles investigates the complex biogeochemistry processes that occur at the soil-water-air interface in natural and agricultural ecosystems.

Research focus

To obtain information on the origin, residence time, cycling and priming of organic matter, elements (N, P, K, Ca, Si, Fe etc.) and colloidal fractions in the soil-plant system and from there into surface - and groundwater. To examine using novel and robust high-resolution tools and technologies the variable, multiple dimensional impacts of natural and anthropogenic environmental perturbations on biogeochemical cycles. To collect field and laboratory based scientific information to provide options to manage natural and managed systems in a sustainable manner within a systems biogeochemistry framework.
