Natural wetlands are not only important methane emitters but can also release substantial amounts of selenium and other trace elements.
By studying selenium and climate trends in the Chinese Loess Plateau, we could show that selenium distribution may be related to rainfall.
Algae can produce volatile organic compounds, which can be transported in the atmosphere and deposited over various spatial scales leading to uneven environmental distributions.
To prevent health hazards due to unsafe levels of trace elements in the environment it is crucial to know their distributions. Find out more about how we can predict such distributions.
