Studying microbial life in extreme cryo-environments

MicroLab@Bristol employs a range of laboratory, field and modeling techniques to study how life excels in extreme cryo-environments and its role in globally relevant processes. We also work closer to home on several marine and freshwater topics.

Some current projects


iDAPT: examining the role of the cryosphere in driving one of the biggest transitions in Earth’s history – the evolution of land plants.

Supraglacial carbon cycling: using field data to model Greenland Ice Sheet glacier algal blooms and their contribution to global carbon cycling.

Smart Catchment Management: using machine learning to model Cyanobacterial metabolite production blooms in freshwater reservoirs.
