Uncovering the Secrets of an Earthquake: Multidisciplinary Study of Physico-Chemical Processes During the Seismic Cycle
ID: 205175
Start date: 2008-06-01, End date: 2013-05-31
Southern Europe and Turkey lie within the highest seismic risk areas in the world. Understanding the physico-chemical processes controlling earthquake generation is essential in seismic hazard assessment. Destructive earthquakes nucleate at depth (10-15 km), therefore monitor...

Early Earth evolution: chemical differentiation vs. mantle mixing
ID: 209035
Start date: 2008-08-01, End date: 2012-11-30
Although short-lived chronometers have yielded a precise chronology of the Early Earth differentiation, there is insufficient data available on the chemical fractionation related to these processes to model the Early Earth’s differentiation. 142Nd isotope data suggest that a ...

Quantifying and modelling pathways of soil organic matter as affected by abiotic factors, microbial dynamics, and transport processes
ID: 208516
Start date: 2008-09-01, End date: 2014-02-28
Soils play a critical role in the coupled carbon-cycle climate system. However, our scientific understanding of the role of soil biological-physicochemical interactions and of vertical transport for biogeochemical cycles is still limited. Moreover the representation of soil p...

Deep Earth Chemistry of the Core
ID: 207467
Start date: 2008-11-01, End date: 2013-10-31
Core formation represents the major chemical differentiation event on the terrestrial planets, involving the separation of a metallic liquid from the silicate matrix that subsequently evolves into the current silicate crust and mantle. The generation of the Earth’s magnetic f...

New approaches to assess the responses of phytoplankton to Global Change
ID: 205150
Start date: 2008-06-01, End date: 2013-05-31
Phytoplankton are responsible for a major part of global primary production due to the immensity of the marine realm and are heavily implicated in global biosphere equilibriums by driving elemental chemistry in surface oceans, exporting massive amounts of C to sediments and i...

Thermal and compositional state of the Earth's inner core from seismic free oscillations
ID: 204995
Start date: 2008-10-01, End date: 2014-09-30
The core, comprising the innermost parts of the Earth, is one of the most dynamic regions of our planet. The inner core is solid, surrounded by a liquid iron alloy. Inner core solidification combined with motions in the fluid outer core drive the geodynamo which generates Ear...

Novel Lipid Biomarkers from Polar Ice: Climatic and Ecological Applications
ID: 203441
Start date: 2008-10-01, End date: 2013-09-30
It is widely acknowledged that polar sea ice plays a critical role in global climate change. As such, sea ice reconstructions are of paramount importance in establishing climatic evolution of the geological past. In the current project, some well characterised organic chemica...

Elemental nitrogen oxidation – A new bacterial process in the nitrogen cycle
ID: 203364
Start date: 2008-07-01, End date: 2013-06-30
The largest reservoir for nitrogen on earth is the atmosphere that contains 78 percent nitrogen gas. Until now the only known biological process interacting with elemental nitrogen is the bacterial reduction of nitrogen to ammonia for the build up of biomass (nitrogen fixatio...

Deciphering Eruptions by Modeling Outputs of Natural Systems
ID: 202844
Start date: 2008-09-01, End date: 2012-12-31
Active volcanoes emit high temperature gases that modify the chemical composition of the Earth’s atmosphere. It is crucial to be able to quantify the contribution of volcanogenic gases to the atmosphere so that the global atmospheric effects of a major eruption can be predict...

Investigating the terrestrial carbon and water cycles with a multi-tracer approach
ID: 202835
Start date: 2008-07-01, End date: 2014-10-31
The aim of COSIRIS is to isolate the simultaneous fluxes of photosynthesis and respiration of the terrestrial biosphere. With explicit knowledge of the component fluxes, we will: 1) test process based models of photosynthesis and respiration, 2) determine the sensitivity of e...
