Master and Bachelor projects in the Biogeochemistry group

The Biogeochemistry research group hosts a range of unique long-term experiments in Danish forest and semi-natural ecosystems, which offer excellent opportunities for master and bachelor projects. We have a strong national and international research profile with a focus and ambition to do excellent and relevant research in biogeochemistry and ecology.

We offer projects within the following major topics:

  • Carbon pools and processes
  • Water in ecosystems
  • Greenhouse gases
  • Nutrient flows in ecosystems

You can formulate your own project or choose one from our list of proposals here.

Ecosystem Services, such as carbon sequestration and clean water, are central to our approach and we consider climate change, nitrogen deposition, management and land use to be the key drivers of changes in the ecosystems. Student projects can involve fieldwork, laboratory experiments, data mining or combinations hereof.

Ecosystem Services Our working concept in the Biogeochemistry group at IGN. The concept of “Ecosystem Services” is central to the scope of our research and we consider four genera topics and their interactions. For each of these topics we have a strong national and international research profile.
