From pole to pole: Cruising the roof of our planet searching for an unseen microbial life
Tue Oct 10 2023 at 06:30 pm to 08:00 pm
Musée national d'histoire naturelle Luxembourg - natur musée | Luxembourg, LU
AdvertisementDr. Battin will give us insight into his research and expeditions during the conference. He is fascinated by the microbial life in high-mountain streams and the relevance of these ecosystems for the global carbon cycle. This research gains importance as high-mountain ecosystems figure among the most vulnerable to climate change.
Tom Battin has published over 130 scientific papers unraveling physical, chemical, and biological processes driving stream ecosystems. Over the last five years, he has organized twelve expeditions to the world’s major mountain ranges to study glacier-fed streams. He has pioneered the field of fluvial biogeosciences for which he has been awarded the prestigious Vladimir Ivanovich Vernadsky Medal of the European Geosciences Union.
