The Geochemistry and Geobiology research group investigates the interactions between geological and biological processes on Earth. We study magmatic, hydrothermal, geochemical and biological processes in modern and ancient geological time, in environments ranging from deep marine sediments to high-temperature seafloor hot springs.
Researchers from the Geochemistry and Geobiology group are part of the K.G. Jebsen Centre for Deep Sea Research.
Our research focuses on six main topics and is tightly connected to the work packages of the K.G. Jebsen Centre.
Ultra-slow spreading ridges
Arctic hydrothermal vents
Seafloor mineral resources
Deep marine sediments
Earth system evolution
We have state-of-the-art facilities in analytical geochemistry and marine technology to our availability to support our research, including the research vessel G.O. Sars and the working class ROV Ægir 6000.

We are also responsible for BSc and MSc courses in mineralogy, geochemistry, geobiology, petrology and geomicrobiology.
