F4 : MYSTHIC – MobilitY versus STorage of HImalayan Carbon

> Read the articles connected to the project.

The Himalaya is a unique, active natural laboratory to study carbon fluxes and emissions associated with mountain formation. At the frontier between petrology, geochemistry and geomicrobiology, MYSTHIC aims at evaluating the storage and mobility of carbon and its impact on endoterrestrial biological activity and carbon emissions, linking current processes to unconstrained (bio)geochemical cycles through geological times.
