  • Banded Iron Formations are controversial ( meta ) sedimentary rocks composed of alternating layers of iron – rich and amorphous silica – rich layers.
  • In the context of early earth evolution the formation of BIFs is considered as a microbially mediated process that involves iron – metabolizing microorganisms.
  • To better understand the genesis of BIFs the project comprises detailed mineralogical and geochemical investigations of banded irons from Western Australia and the experimental laboratory simulation of microbially mediated precipitation of iron minerals.
