Isotope Studies of the Sulfur Cycling using the Four Sulfur Isotopes: Developing Tools to Investigate the Flow of Sulfur through Biogeochemical Systems
FP7 Project with U.S. partner
Short name and number
Food, Agriculture and Fisheries, Biotechnology
New developments in isotope ratio mass spectrometry have made possible the use of both traditional and rare sulfur isotopes in biogeochemical systems studies and open new ways to explore natural sulfur cycle. The project will focus on the detection of the abundances of four sulfur isotopes in reduced and intermediate sulfur compounds such as sulfide, dispersed particulate elemental sulfur, polysulfides, thiosulfate and polythionates in natural aquatic and sedimentary systems.
