It is now possible to undertake high-resolution modeling of the Earth's systems involving complex physics and biogeochemistry
without significant code tuning efforts.
The use of biogeochemistry
in mineral exploration is an emerging field that shows exciting potential to become a valuable new exploration method that can complement the existing conventional geochemical and geophysical tools available to mineral explorers.
Chris Freeman, professor of peatland biogeochemistry
at the School of Biological Sciences, said: "We first noticed that the ditches draining areas converted to palm oil plantations were loaded with unusually high levels of dissolved carbon back in 1995.
of Trace Elements in Coal and Coal Combustion, Ed: K.
These microbes have turned out to be of fundamental importance in understanding the ecology and biogeochemistry
of the open oceans.
Base cation and silicon biogeochemistry
under pine and scrub oak monocultures: implications for weathering rates.
Among the topics are research studies on exhaust emission from the heavy duty diesel engine fueled by biodiesel, lessons from genetics on preserving the biodiversity of freshwater ecosystems in a scenario of increasing desertification, how phytocaps reduce methane emission from landfills, internalizing externalities of energy systems in a comprehensive modeling approach to re-orienting the choices of energy-economics markets, assessment and monitoring tools for urban and forest trees, the role of salt marsh plants and microorganisms in sediment metal biogeochemistry
, and using ground-penetrating radar to investigate pollutant leakage at Songshuling Landfill in Huzhou.
If this gene can be cloned into problematic crops such as rice, arsenic burdens in edible parts may be greatly reduced," agrees Andrew Meharg, chair of biogeochemistry
at the University of Aberdeen, United Kingdom.
Running a computer model that links global economic and biogeochemistry
data, Marine Biological Laboratory researcher Jerry Melillo and his colleagues projected that growing energy crops will require cutting down a lot of forest, which releases extra carbon dioxide into the atmosphere.
She said: "My postgraduate experience in biogeochemistry
has equipped me well for this job.
First appointed as Professor of Marine Biology and then Marine Biogeochemistry
at the School of Ocean Sciences, Professor Williams has received the ASLO (American Society of Limnology and Oceanography) Redfield Lifetime Achievement Award.
Ron teaches graduate courses in Chemical Oceanography, Sediment Biogeochemistry
, Ocean Variability and Global Change, Marine Microbial Ecology, Marine Biogeochemical Processes and Seminar in Marine Science.
