Chair for Geochemistry and Geoecology

Earth System Science is the core of the professorship. Processes and phenomena in atmosphere, pedosphere, hydrosphere, biosphere and lithosphere with their interactions are studied mostly in Europe, Asia and Latinamerica.

Research Areas of our Working Group: 

  • Analytical Geochemistry
  • Environmental Geochemistry
  • Geochronology
  • Isotopic Geochemistry

Geochronology and Isotopic Geochemistry and related laboratories are headed by Prof. Dr. Marion Tichomirowa. Analytical and Environmental Geochemistry are under the wings of Prof. Dr. Jörg Matschullat with labs headed by Dr. Alexander Plessow. A broad spectrum of analytical work and related services is carried out for colleagues within our university. Environmental Geochemistry embraces a wide range of subject areas – from atmospheric chemistry to soil chemistry. Examining biota, water bodies, sediments, material balances, mass balance computations and information on processes remain our priorities in all core areas.
