Trace metal biogeochemistry with a special focus on metal speciation (inorganic versus organometal complexes; labile versus non-labile), is intensively studied in all kind of aquatic systems. The leaching capacity of contaminated sediments, particularly important when general water quality conditions are modified, is assessed by in situ probes, sequential extraction techniques and dynamic flow experiments. Furthermore, major elements and contaminants are investigated along growth axes of non-organic biogenic substrates such as shells and corals, reflecting past water quality conditions. As a part of the greenhouse problem, the impact of plankton productivity on the removal of atmospheric carbon dioxide is estimated via carbon (C-13) and nitrogen (N-15) uptake measurements in the upper ocean layer. Mathematical models conceptualize the transport and biogeochemical processes of the selected compounds in the various aquatic environments.
