Sanchez Moral Sergio
Ph.D. in Geosciences (1994), has over 20 years experience in modeling low-Temperature geochemical processes including isotope geochemistry and geomicrobiology with an internationally recognised track record of applying specialised analytical techniques for problem solving applied to surface and sub-surface processes.
The specific objectives of the research group cover the following subjects:
- - Studies on the biogeochemical exchange mechanisms of greenhouse gases (GEIs) between subsoil/soil/atmosphere and its response to climate variations either natural or those of anthropic origin.
- - Environmental-biogeochemical monitoring of earth ecosystems in different climatic contexts.
- - Applying isotopic chemistry and environmental monitoring of ecosystems to quantify exchange fluxes of GHGs between earth ecosystems and the atmosphere.
- - Developing, at mid-long term, technological alternatives for removal or storage of GEIs; identifying a new cost-efficient method to mitigate CH4 emissions; designing new strategies for CO2 sequestration in subterranean environments.
- The role of microorganisms in the formation of calcitic moonmilk deposits and speleothems in Altamira Cave Bacteria are able to induce carbonate precipitation although the participation of microbial or chemical processes in speleothem formation remains a matter of debate.These results suggest that bacterial activity induces mineral precipitation
