Forschungsschwerpunkte / Research interests

Large River Research:

  • Long-term goal: understanding matter fluxes and biological transformations (C, N, P) between inland and ocean
  • microbial process research
  • focus on hydrological extreme events related to MOSES (Modular Observations Solutions for Earth Systems)
  • Scientific coordination of research vessel Albis https://www.ufz.de/index.php?de=39673

Coupling of molecular composition of dissolved organic matter (DOM) and bacterial activity

Microbial processing of DOM in streams within TERENO (Terrestrial Environmental Observatory)

Matter processing (C, N, P) within the project "Wild Mulde - Revitalisation of a natural river in Central Germany" (Federal Ministry of Research and Education)

Kooperationen / Projekte | Co-operations / Projects

Molecular characterization of dissolved organic matter (DOM) using FT-ICR MS and NMR (Norbert Hertkorn, Mourad Harir, Philippe Schmitt-Kopplin, Helmholtz Centre Munich; Oliver Lechtenfeld, Thorsten Reemtsma, UFZ Leipzig)

DOM from land-based aquacultures: quality and bacterial degradation. (Jorge Nimptsch, Stefan Woelfl; Valdivia, Chile; Norbert Hertkorn, München)

How is DOM quality linked to microbial metabolism? An experimental approach (Pascal Bodmer, Katrin Premke; Berlin)
