Course summary

Our geochemistry research includes specific areas of expertise: applied and fundamental aspects of geochemistry; environmental sustainability; climate change; and biosphere/geosphere interactions. Through working with academics who are leaders in their field, you will be supported and guided to produce research of an international standard.

The School of Natural and Environmental Sciences enjoys an international reputation for using the latest science to solve problems of global importance. For geochemistry we have supervision in the following areas:

Petroleum-related geological research

reservoir and source-rock geochemistry
microbial deep biosphere of petroleum reservoirs
origin, significance and maturation of molecular biomarker compounds in the sedimentary record
physico-chemical properties and behaviour of mudstone sequences
shale gas
geological sequestration of CO2
palynofacies and organic facies of ancient and modern sediments

Environment-related research

molecular microbial ecology
molecular palaeontology
soil biogeochemistry
waste management
bioremediation of polluted soils and waters
biogeochemical cycling of elements through Earth history
climate change during past greenhouse conditions
