Marine ecosystems and biogeochemistry
In a highly collaborative environment using a convergence of methods that include laboratory experiments, expeditions at sea around the world, satellite remote sensing, and sophisticated numerical simulations of the global ocean, ESS oceanographers are working to understand the fundamental biological, chemical, and physical processes that shape Earth’s vast marine ecosystems and it’s global biogeochemical cycles.
How photosynthesis shapes, and is shaped by, biological, chemical, and physical processes in the ocean
Structure, function, and biogeochemical significance of marine microbial communities in a changing ocean
Role of marine biota in global biogeochemical cycles and Earth's climate system
Investigate why the 14C age of marine dissolved organic carbon (DOC) is thousands of years old, despite evidence that most of it is produced in the surface ocean during photosynthesis
Radiocarbon (14C) measurements to support C cycle research.
