Herndl Lab - Microbial Oceanography
Professor Dr. Gerhard Herndl
A-1090 Vienna, Austria
The Microbial Oceanography group is studying the interaction between the hydrology, biogeochemistry and microbial community structure and function of the main deep-water masses driving the meridional ocean circulation in the North Atlantic. The overarching goal is to arrive at a mechanistic understanding on the microbial food web dynamics mediating the biogeochemistry of the dark ocean.
