MARUM and the Oceans in the Earth System Cluster  


Our group participates in the research areas Oceans and Climate and Geosphere and Biosphere Interactions and in particular in the research project GB6 Mineral authigenesis and organimineralization (2007-2012). Further information see: MARUM Webpages. All other MARUM research groups intensively use our help to incorporate X-ray diffraction measurements and mineralogical analysis in their research.
