Biogeochemistry & Global Environmental Change

This area of research is at the intersection of several disciplines, and itself relates to much of the other research conducted at Penn. Research foci include soil carbon storage and cycling, an important aspect of the global carbon cycle. General research covers elemental cycling within and between the biosphere, geosphere, hydrosphere and atmosphere and how the biosphere shapes soil processes and Earth forms. Other topics relate to anthropogenic impacts on nutrient cycling and environmental health.
