GEOMICROBIOLOGY & BIOGEOCHEMISTRY IN THE CRITICAL ZONE

Developing a predictive understanding of how the interaction among soil microbes, roots, mineral composition, and soil organic matter drives Critical Zone biogeochemistry and soil formation.

About the Geomicrobiology Cluster

We will build on existing capabilities within several former CZOs to investigate the linkages between depth-dependent microbial structure, function, and biotic and abiotic features of the soil environment to better understand the interactions between geomicrobiology and biogeochemistry throughout CZ weathering profiles.
