Research Interests

The research conducted in my group focuses on various topics. Several projects deal with element cycling in the ocean, atmosphere and biosphere. This includes greenhouse gases such as carbon dioxide and its impact on Earth's climate in the past present and future. One of our currently funded projects investigates the effects of invasion of man-made carbon dioxide in the world's ocean, termed ocean acidification. Many of these issues require a good understanding of the carbon cycle and of the chemistry of dissolved carbon dioxide in the ocean, see our book on CO2 in seawater.
