REGARDS intranet

Max-Planck-Institute for Biogeochemistry, Jena

The Max Planck Institute for Biogeochemistry in Jena is dedicated to the study of global cycles of essential elements on Earth, their interactions among the biosphere, atmosphere, geosphere and the oceans, and their interrelation with the physical climate system.

The Molecular Biogeochemistry research group explores key processes in the global biogeochemical cycles at the molecular level. Biomarkers and their isotopic content hold information on the regulation of the individual processes. The group is developing new tools and is applying existing techniques to investigate single key processes.

The Max-Planck staff involved in REGARDS are:

Gerd Gleixner, who is  a senior group leader in the Department of Biogeochemical Processes
Stefan Karlowski, PhD student
