Coral in the open ocean

Research Projects

We seek to understand the dynamics of carbon budgets on different marine ecosystems (e.g. kelp forests, coral reefs, sea grass beds) and how they become more or less vulnerable to ocean acidification.

    Coral Reef Biogeochemistry

    We seek to understand the dynamics of carbon budgets on different marine ecosystems (e.g. kelp forests, coral reefs, sea grass beds) and how they become more or less vulnerable to ocean acidification.

    Kelp Forest Biogeochemistry

    Kelp forests are some of the most productive marine environments in the world. Our goal is to understand how they may react to future changes in ocean temperature and pH.
