  • Koninklijk Museum voor Midden Afrika; Departement geologie en mineralogie (KMMA), more

The Earth Sciences department of the Royal Museum for Central Africa (RMCA) carries out diverse geological and environmental research in a number of African countries. The research inter alia comprises general geology, cartography, geochemistry, isotope geology and geomorphology.

The Mineralogy and Petrography section is part of this department and focuses on geochemistry applied to questions regarding global changes (in the distribution of chemical elements in different spheres of the environment). The marine research activities include the study of biogeochemical cycles in seas and oceans. In this context, the section is involved in the BIGSOUTH-project in the Southern Ocean.
