Biogeoscience

Members of the new Biogeoscience group investigate living systems as fundamental components of the Earth System and possibly other planetary systems through the integrated study of biology, geochemistry, and geology. In DEES, students have the opportunity to work with faculty in aquatic, wetland and terrestrial ecology, biological oceanography, evolutionary biology, microbial genomics, biogeochemistry, paleobiology and astrobiology. DEES Biogeosciences faculty conduct research on biodiversity and ecosystem function, ecological responses to climate change, biogeochemical cycling and storage of nutrients and carbon, plant physiology and biooptics (both aquatic and terrestrial), and the application of isotopic, fossil and organic geochemical tracers to the study of climate and Earth history. Fieldwork and lab experiments employ diverse analytical, observational and modeling tools to build understanding of the Biosphere and its interactions within the Earth System, in the past, present and future.
