Mål

The purpose of this research is to increase the knowhow in biogeochemistry, soil geochemistry, microbiology as well as combination of compositional data analysis and community ecological analyses for mineral exploration in northern areas. The objective of this work is the find and test proper statistical techniques for describing the association of microbial communities and geochemistry.

Utfall

The knowledge obtained by this research can be applied both in mineral exploration and further development of microbial assisted leaching of minerals and bioremediation of metal and metalloid contaminated soils.
