Research within the SPP is organised in 6 thematic groups (TGs)
TG 1: Exploration of formation, maturation and dynamics of biogeochemical interfaces (BGIs).
Moderators: Katja Heister and Anja Miltner
TG 2: Linking BGI properties to processes: Exemplified by sorption, transformation and bioavailability.
Moderators: Gabriele E. Schaumann and Michael Schloter
Joint experiment: Restructuring of biogeochemical interfaces: Role of cations and heat treatment - a joint experiment linking properties to processes (to display the poster of the joint experiment, please click here)
Participating PIs: Jörg Bachmann, Martin Kaupenjohann and Gabriele E. Schaumann
TG 3: Bridging scales: Conceptual understanding interface properties and functions at different/across scales.
Moderators: Jörg Bachmann Kai-Uwe Totsche and Hans-Jörg Vogel
TG 4: Spectro-microscopy and -tomography: Visualisation of architecture - mapping constituents and properties.
Moderators: Thomas Baumann and Hans-Jörg Vogel

TG 5: Computational chemistry and advanced physicochemical characterization: Quantitative reconstruction and modelling of BGIs, their properties and interactions.
Moderators: Martin H. Gerzabek and Gabriele E. Schaumann
TG 5 Poster: Computational chemistry and advanced physicochemical characterization - quantitative reconstruction and modeling of BGIs, their properties and interactions. The poster was presented during Symposium on Advanced Spectroscopic and Microscopic Characterisation Techniques - Tools to Enlighten Biogeochemical Interfaces in Soil. 4.10. - 5.10.2010., in Dornburg (to display the poster, please click here)
TG 5 Poster: Interactions of organic compounds with soil components - elucidaiting mechanisms on molecular level. The poster was presented during DFG meeeting in 2011 (to display the poster, please click here)
TG 6: Soil microbial ecology: Explore community's role for BGIs as "architect and actor" - elucidate transformation of organic chemicals.
Moderators: Marcus A. Horn, Steffen Kolb and Kornelia Smalla
