- Our aim is to explore natural processes happening
at the interface of the biosphere and the geosphere,
based on novel and classical methods. We apply in
fossilio and in silico methods focused
on reconstructions of the past and testing research
hypotheses based on computer modelling.
- In our sense, the BIOGEOSYSTEM represents all
interactions between associated phenomena at
the bio/geo-interface, regardless their time
and space ranges. There are processes analysed
in nanno-, micro-, macroscale, as well as regional
and global scales.
- Biogeosystem modelling describes interactions
between organic and inorganic systems. Final
simulations are verified based on observations
in real world.
- The classical methods in fossilio use
qualitative and quantitative analyses of microfossils,
applied to reconstructing paleoenvironment within
selected geological time intervals. Our favourite
microfossils include Foraminifera (tests/shells),
Dinnoflagellata (cysts) and calcareous nanoplankton
analysed in the marine sedimentary context.
