Biogeochemistry: awae research subject areas


landscape image

Biogeochemistry is the scientific study of the processes and reactions (chemical, physical, geological, biological) which control the composition of the natural environment. It also looks at the cycles of matter and energy that transfer the Earth’s chemical components in time and space.

 

Aquatic biogeochemistry (carbon storage and flux; nitrogen cycling, and retention) have been studied in manipulated and control catchments, providing a greater understanding of the processes that control stream-water quality with the Air, Water and Aquatic Environments Program.
