Microbial iron reduction in clay minerals: new insights from stable iron isotopes

The paper entitled “Consecutive Fe redox cycles decrease bioreducible Fe(III) and Fe isotope fractionations by eliminating small clay particles” was published in the journal Geochimica et Cosmochimica Acta by ERG researchers Bingjie Shi, Christina Smeaton, Chris Parsons and Philippe Van Cappellen in collaboration with colleagues from the University of Wisconsin-Madison.  The paper presents the very first experimental data on the changes in iron (Fe) isotope fractionation of a Fe-rich clay mineral during successive redox cycles.

Canadian Peatland Carbon Emission Paper by Arash, Fereidoun and Philippe Published in Nature

A study by ecohydrology members Arash Rafat, Fereidoun Rezanezhad and Philippe Van Cappellen was published in Nature’s Communications Earth & Environment journal! This study explores how carbon emissons of Candaian Peatlands are projected to increase by 103% by 2100. The news has also been published by the UW press and Water Insitute News.
