Areas of expertise The Organic Geochemistry Unit (OGU) is based in the School of Chemistry of the University of Bristol.

The research we conduct aims to develop our understanding of the biogeochemistry of modern-day and ancient environments and the way that it is affected by natural processes and the actions of mankind. This is achieved principally through the application of cutting-edge analytical chemistry and instrumental techniques.

The group laboratories also hosts the NERC Life Sciences Mass Spectrometry Facility (Bristol node).

The OGU is one of the groups comprising the Bristol Biogeochemistry Research Centre.
