Press article about Antarctica

10.06.2024

"Warming in the cooler" - press article on our research about how climate change and raising temperatures are leaving its mark in Antarctica - including insights and photos from the "Journey to Antarctica" voyage from Lindblad Expeditions - National Geographic, where Gonzalo joined and took water, ice and soil samples as a visiting scientist - together with David Velázquez, a National Geographic Explorer from UAM, Madrid.
 

Excellent job by the LMU press team - thank you Monika Gödde and Dominic Anders! Looking forward to working with you again!

Scientific Expedition

May 2023

During May 2023, we went to Denmark to sample fjord waters at different oxygen concentration from a unique anoxic basin. We performed onboard incubations and experiments with microbes and dissolved organic matter (DOM). This expedition included scientists from six different nationalities (Danish, German, Turkish, French, Australian and Spanish) and the represented research institutions and universities were the Ludwig-Maximilians University (Munich, Germany), the Max Planck Institute for Marine Microbiology (Bremen, Germany) and the Center for Electromicrobiology of Aarhus University (Aarhus, Denmark).

Thank you to our fantastic collaborators and special thanks to the Mariager Sailing Club for their help in the field!

Award

Ömer got awarded with the Best PhD Thesis prize from Munich GeoCenter for his thesis:

"Quantifying carbon fixation in microbial dark matter from low-temperature hydrothermal settings: experimental validation using quantitative stable isotope probing".
