Subsurface Biogeochemical Research Program

BER Welcomes Two New Program Managers

University-Led Research Projects

The Subsurface Biogeochemical Research program supports a diverse portfolio of projects led by university principal investigators. This fundamental research uses integrative, hypothesis-driven approaches to examine critical subsurface biogeochemical, hydrobiogeochemical, and ecohydrological processes in studies that complement, but do not duplicate, scientific focus area activities at Department of Energy national laboratories.
