[1] 石油微生物:石油微生物是深地生物圈的重要组成部分,是研究极端环境微生物的理想场所。目前石油微生物已经被用于提高低渗透油藏、高稠原油采收率的重要方法。尽管在微生物与原油的相互作用上取得了较大的进展,但油藏微生物与储层的相互作用及其对储层物性的影响却鲜为人知。本团队关注微生物与储层中含铁粘土矿物的相互作用,以及它们对储层物性的影响。目的在于通过微生物的手段,改造储层性质,最终提高原油的采收率。
[2] 微生物与矿物相互作用:微生物与矿物的相互作用是地质微生物领域重要的研究方向和研究热点。本团队重点关注微生物诱导形成白云石的围观机理以及微生物与含铁粘土矿物的相互作用,对蒙脱石向伊利石转化的影响。阐述微生物与矿物相互作用的地质学意义。
[3] 微生物生态学:重点关注湿地生态系统、喀斯特洞穴系统以及硫化物矿区微生物功能群的时空分布特征及其介导的生物地球化学循环,探讨在全球变暖的背景下,不同微生物功能群对气候变化的响应。
