Biogeochemistry of meromictic mine pit lakes in Spaín

Cueva de la Mora

In cooperation with the geological survey of Spain (IGME, Dr. J.Sanchez Espana) we study microbial processes in meromictic pit lakes in Analusia. The goal of the project is to find out the role of microbial processes for geochemical stratification and water quality in pit lakes of the Spanish pyrite belt.
