Alexandra Rodler

Alexandra Rodler is a postdoctoral researcher at the Analytical, Environmental and Geo-Chemistry research group, Vrije Universiteit Brussel. She is using (isotope) geochemistry for reconstructing paleo-environmental conditions at critical intervals of climatic change and links between the rise of oxygen levels and the evolution of complex life. Currently she is using mechanistic laboratory experiments analogue with natural samples to further investigate the potential of novel paleo-redox tracers. You can also find her on twitter @asrodler.

EGU2020 BG Sessions in the spotlight: Stable isotopes

EGU2020 BG Sessions in the spotlight: Stable isotopes

The deadline for EGU 2020 abstract submissions is coming closer – today we highlight sessions focused on the application of (stable) isotope tracers to questions in biogeoscience.   First, for those of you who use light stable isotopes, there is session BG2.8 Application of Stable Isotopes in Biogeosciences, co-organized by HS13, co-sponsored by EAG and convened by Michael E. Böttcher, ...[Read More]

EGU2020 BG Sessions in the spotlight: Extreme environments

EGU2020 BG Sessions in the spotlight: Extreme environments

Less than one month left for the EGU 2020 abstract deadline on January 15. Today we highlight two sessions of BG 5 – Geomicrobiology, extreme environments on Earth and planetary analogues.   First, BG5.1: Biology and Geology of extreme environments on Earth and planetary analogs. This session is convened by Monica Pondrelli, Jessica Flahaut, Frances Westall, Helge Niemann and Barbara Cavalazz ...[Read More]

EGU2020 BG Sessions in the spotlight: Methane

EGU2020 BG Sessions in the spotlight: Methane

The EGU 2020 abstract submissions are open until January 15. Here, we’ll highlight the planned biogeosciences sessions. Stay tuned and find the session for your abstract! Today’s focus is on Methane. Methane, a potent greenhouse gas, is steadily increasing in concentration in the atmosphere, prompting fears that it could scupper our chances to meet the global climate targets. But given its relativ ...[Read More]
