Isotope Insights into the Phosphorus Cycle of Marine SedimentsDissertation zur Erlangung des Doktorgrads der Naturwissenschaften (Dr. rer. nat.) am Fachbereich für Geowissenschaften Universität Bremenvorgelegt vonTobias Karl Magnus GoldhammerOktober 20091. Gutachter PD Dr. Matthias Zabel2. Gutachter Prof. Dr. Kai-Uwe Hinrichs Tag des Dissertationskolloquiums: 26. Oktober 2009 What is a scientist after all? It is a curious man looking through a keyhole, the keyhole of nature - trying to know what’s going on.Jacques-Yves CousteauPrefaceThis study was funded by Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft (DFG) via DFG Research Center and Excellence Cluster “MARUM – The Ocean in the Earth System” and part of the Project B2 “Simulation of biogeochemical processes in the marine subsurface: understanding carbon-flow and identification of process-specific biosignatures”. The project has been supervised by PD Dr. Matthias Zabel (MARUM and University of Bre-men), and Dr. Timothy G. Ferdelman (MARUM and Max-Planck-Institute for Marine Microbiology, Bremen). The research was conducted at Geochemistry and Hydrogeol-ogy Group, Department of Geosciences, University of Bremen, and at Biogeochemistry Group, Department of Biogeochemistry, Max-Planck-Institute for Marine Microbiol-ogy, Bremen, from July 2006 to September 2009. The present dissertation focuses on identifying the microbial contribution to marine phosphorus biogeochemistry and comprises six parts.
