Cataclastic hydrogEn and oxidant pRoduction in the deep BiosphERe: Uncovering the ancient role of microbial antioxidant enzymeS

CERBERUS is a three year National Environment Research Council (NERC, 2022-2025) funded project with the goal of ascertaining how mechanochemical reactions, that can occur along tectonically driven faults and fracture zones, can generate hydrogen gas and oxidants from water to support the hot, subsurface biosphere, both today and in the deep geological past.

This website contains an introduction to the science behind CERBERUS and acts as the first port of call for keeping up to date with our news and output. You can also 'meet the team' and find further contact details.
