Description: This is the home page for the Kamchatka Microbial Observatory, an international microbial and biogeochemical research program led by Dr. Juergen Wiegel of the University of Georgia (UGA). The project focus is studying hotsprings in Kamchatka, Russia to understand and correlate geochemical and microbial interactions in hydrothermal systems, which in turn can be used as models for early life on earth and for potential extraterrestrial biological systems. The home page includes a menu of links to navigate to the project description, people involved, public outreach, and other research. The public outreach link brings the user to a page of links including Microbial Observatory funded projects and organizations working in Kamchatka.
