Abstract:
The branch Mineralogy falls under the Geology and Mineralogy department of the Royal Museum for Central Africa (RCMA) which was founded in 1898. The section is divided into three units: (1) Geochemistry of endogenous processes, petrology and mineralogy; (2) Bio- and hydrogeochemistry, environmental sciences and (3) Laboratory and analytical methodology. The research focuses on applied geochemistry, petrology and the distribution of chemical elements in different environments. The marine research activities include the study of biogeochemical cycles in seas and oceans. The group is also actively involved in several marine and estuarine research projects.
