UFZ Masstwin Ladour

3rd MASSTWIN Exploratory Workshop

The use of stable isotopes techniques for assessing biogeochemical cycling of contaminants and nutrients

Hosted by:

Helmholtz Centre for Environmental Research, Halle, Germany

In collaboration with

IPREM/CNRS/Université de Pau et des Pays de l’Adour, Pau, France

The goal of this exploratory workshop is to bring together European experts who make use of a broad range of stable isotope techniques to address very different scientific and practical questions for providing a better understanding of natural environmental processes and for managing human impact on water, soil, atmosphere and biosphere.
The objective of the workshop is to show and discuss how stable isotope laboratory techniques and the respective data produced can be utilized for real-world-applications to follow pathways of contaminant transport and degradation, to reveal process details controlling nutrient cycling in anthropogenic and natural environmental settings, and to model and predict future scenarios with respect to environmental quality of all different compartments.

The workshop will take place from

November 14th – 16th 2018 at the

Helmholtz Centre for Environmental Research in Halle, Germany


The form was only in use during in the period from 24.09.2018 to 08.11.2018!
