The Centre for Environmental Geochemistry (CEG) focuses on the use of geochemistry in research, training and teaching. We investigate:
- environmental and climate change
- biogeochemical cycling including pollution typing/provenance
- science-based archaeology
- the use of geochemical tools for research into the subsurface
