GEOHYD Lunch Seminar: Unravelling organic matter degradation mechanisms from deep lake sediments to permafrost

Welcome to our GEOHYD Lunch Seminar Friday 14th of October @ 12:15 in Aud. 2, Geology building or via videolink using Zoom. The seminar is helt by François Clayer, NIVA.

Seminar by François Clayer, Researcher Scientist, The Norwegian Institute for Water Research (NIVA).

Unravelling organic matter degradation mechanisms from deep lake sediments to permafrost


Abstract: The complexity of organic matter (OM) degradation mechanisms represents a significant challenge for developing biogeochemical models to quantify the role of waterbodies in the global carbon cycle. Knowledge gaps on biogeochemical feedback mechanisms across boreal waterbodies restrict our ability to make robust predictions of repercussions between climate and C cycling using Earth System Models (ESMs). This presentation will provide an overview of three recent or current projects, investigating greenhouse gas production and OM degradation pathways in deep lake sediments, along the aquatic continuum (headwaters to fjord) and in a permafrost palsa environment.


The talk is in Aud 2 in the Geology Building. It is also possible to follow at Zoom.

Videolink to the lecture will be sent to the mailinglists alle@geo and geohyd-info@geo. If you want to subscribe to the geohyd-info@geo list send an email to Anita

About the seminar

This seminar is offered by the Section for Geography and Hydrology, Dept. of Geosciences, University of Oslo. The GEOHYD-seminars are announced as lunch seminars so bring your lunch if you want to. 

The seminars are open for everyone interested, and especially students are welcome.
