Abstract:

Our long term goal is to understand the mechanisms controlling the cycling of metals in the marine environment, more specifically the role of microbial activities in the precipitation of metals and mineral formation. It is important to be able to distinguish biotic from abiotic processes and to determine the relative contribution of the different mechanisms to metal cycling and the microbial populations involved.
