International Chair (Europole Mer / UEB)
Deep Sea Environments
This international chair was co-funded for 3 years by UEB, University of Brest (UBO) and Ifremer. Olivier Rouxel and his team were jointly hosted by UBO and Ifremer.
Olivier Rouxel has since taken up a position in the Geochemistry and Metallogeny laboratory at Ifremer in Brest, France.
Marine biogeochemical cycles are the result of individual life histories of marine organisms. Therefore, a detailed understanding of the evolutionary forces driving biogeochemical fluxes needs both, observational and experimental analyses. The main aim of our working group is to perform experimental analyses of key processes and evolutionary dynamics underlying important biogeochemical fluxes.
After his position as International Chair, Herwig Stibor has taken up a position as the head of the Aquatic Ecology laboratory at Munich University.
