Johannes Gutenberg-Universität Mainz, Institute of Inorganic and Analytical Chemistry – Group Environmental and Atmospheric Chemistry

The main areas of research of the group are in the field of organic and inorganic trace analysis by using and further developing mass spectrometric methods, often in combination with chromatographic methods.

The group participates in the research in the Blessberg cave by reconstructing the vegetation above the cave by analysing biopolymers in stalagmites and by analysing biochemical fire markers in soil, water, and stalagmite samples.
