Rare earth elements in the soil–plante system
February 2022
Transfer of trace elements from soil to plant is a corner stone for risk assessment. Rare earth elements are frequently used as geochemical tracers for element transfer to plant. In this study, we evaluated biogeochemical behaviors of trace elements and rare earth elements in the soil–plant continuum to assess to what extend the rare earth element monitoring allows identifying preferential pathway from soil to plant.

Lichens are studied as indicators of air quality in Ottignie-Louvain-la-Neuve. A citizen science network is in the process. More information on the website : www.lichen.biogeoscience.eu
Mission in Abisko
August 2021
As part of the INCEPTION project, a field mission took place in Abisko in August 2021 with a team from Sorbonne Université and Paris-Saclay This project aims to assess the coupling of chemical elements (carbon, nitrogen and trace elements such as vanadium and molybdenum) in permafrost environments.
