AGU’s Biogeoscience section encompasses interactions between biological, geological, hydrologic and atmospheric systems that govern diverse functions of the Earth system (and other planetary systems). These functions include: cycles of carbon, nutrients, and other elements; feedbacks within the climate system; the origins and impacts of early life; and interactions across physical, biological, and human interfaces.
Our Mission: Promote Biogeoscience research and the diverse community of researchers working at the interface between life science and Earth system science.

  • Researchers used data from a pan-Arctic survey of carbon and trace elements to better understand how climate change will affect primary production in one of the fastest warming regions of the world.
  • Eight hundred meters below the West Antarctic Ice Sheet, microbes in subglacial Lake Whillans create organic carbon that helps power the Southern Ocean’s vast food chain.
  • Unprecedented global climate model simulations, incorporating observational data from the New Horizons mission, reveal atmospheric circulations driven by a large ice cap on Pluto.
