The Biogeochemistry Laboratory undertakes studies on geochemical cycles which are driven by or have an influence on the biosphere. A particular focus is on understanding the evolution of biogeochemical cycles of carbon, nitrogen, sulfur, phosphorus, and other elements and their relationships to global change and ecosystem processes. The mission of the Biogeochemistry Laboratory is to produce high quality elemental and compound specific data for solids, liquids, and gases using a combination of laboratory methods/instrumentation and sensors deployed in the field. Investigators also teach students and visitors the techniques involved in gathering such data.
