Marine chemistry

In marine chemistry, we study the properties, composition, and structure of elements, ions and compounds in the ocean. This involves studying the structural and compositional transformations as well as energy transformations. Of great interest to us is the dynamic interactions of these processes with currents, sediments, pH levels, atmospheric constituents, geology and ecology. All this makes marine chemistry an interdisciplinary field. That is obvious from how we, for example, study chemical signaling among marine organisms, decomposition in the sea of cultural heritage, the oceanic carbon cycle, ocean acidification and benthic nutrient fluxes. To achieve our goals we use a multitude of analytical chemical tools. Significant are chromatography, mass spectrometry and Raman spectroscopy. Data analyses involve multivariate evaluation techniques and in our research we use advanced chemical modelling.
