CAS: Energy limits and life in the subsurface sediments and permafrost

Opening hours / Beginning:

7:00 pm

1 February 2022



All organisms need energy at some rate (i.e. power) to survive and function. Subsurface life operates much slower than surface life, using much less power. James Bradley and his group are exploring the power utilization and survival of microorganisms in global marine sediments and permafrost, to understand the limits of life and the response of microbial communities to global change.


  • Prof. James Bradley, PhD, Professor of Environmental Science at Queen Mary University of London and currently Fellow at LMU's Center for Advanced Studies


  • Prof. William Orsi, PhD, Professor of Paleontology and Geobiology at LMU

The Center for Advanced Studies at LMU provides a forum for scientific exchange and discussion that bridges the divide between the established disciplines. Its activities are designed to promote all forms of collaborative research and to stimulate interdisciplinary communication within the University. In addition, it facilitates the integration of visiting scholars and scientists into the academic life of the University.
