The Laboratory for Inorganic Environmental Geochemistry (LAGO) focuses on research in the field of inorganic geochemistry and biogeochemistry of aquatic environments, with special attention to sedimentary systems. The research group uses state-of-art equipment to address fundamental issues on how marine and freshwater systems work, linking the distribution , speciation and behaviour of trace metals and inorganic species in aquatic environments with the aim to expand our knowledge about their biogeochemical cycles and anthropogenic pressures on the environement. Extensive analytical capabilities allow for the sensitive and detailed characterization of a large suite of inorganic and organometallic species.

Transport and Chemodynamics of Trace Elements in Freshwater and Coastal Sedimentary Systems (TRACESS)

Glavni istraživač / voditelj: Goran Kniewald

The aim of the proposed project entitled "Transport and Chemodynamics of Trace Elements in Freshwater and Coastal Sedimentary Systems" (TRACESS) is to increase our understanding of the biogeochemical cycles that are important for freshwater and coastal sedimentary systems in karstic areas, using specific groups of elements i.e. anthropogenic and bioactive (Cd, Co, Cr, Cu, Mn, Ni, V, Zn), rare earth elements (REE), redox sensitive elements, toxic elements and compounds (organotin compounds) which were chosen to represent different biogeochemical environments where a suite of geochemical processes can be traced. Sideline research will involve balneochemical investigations of peloid producing environments in pristine and anthropogenically impacted locations along the eastern Adriatic coast.
