Welcome to the website of the Carbon Cycle Biogeoscience (BGS) Group at ETH Zurich. We are part of the Geological Institute within the Department of Earth Sciences. This newly-formed group has been chaired by Prof. Timothy Eglinton since July, 2010.

The focus of the research program of Tim Eglinton and other members of the Biogeoscience group is to investigate the role of organic matter production, remineralization, transport and burial as a component of the global carbon cycle. A particular emphasis is on the processes that give rise to the accumulation of organic matter in ocean sediments, and on deciphering the record of past Earth and ecosystem changes embedded in these and other geological archives.
