Labs and Research Groups

Dr. Clifton Buck’s research group explores the chemistry of elements which are present in seawater at extraordinarily minute concentrations. Termed “trace elements,” they are present in the complicated milieu at concentrations of parts per trillion. Despite these…

Current research projects 



  • OCEANIC TRANSPORT OF MELTWATER IN THE LABRADOR SEA




  • THE ROLE OF WINDS AND EDDIES ON VARIABILITY IN EASTERN BOUNDARY CURRENT SYSTEMS




  • PARTICULATE ORGANIC CARBON EXPORT OFF THE ANTARCTIC…

In the Di Iorio Physical and Acoustical Oceanography laboratory we specialize in research that focuses on the fundamental laws of physics in the ocean environment. We strive to understand circulation processes that range from the coastal ocean to the deep-sea…

What we do in the Joye Research Group


Biogeochemistry is an interdisciplinary science that examines how biological processes mediate the geological and chemical dynamics of the Earth's hydrosphere and lithosphere. The integrative…

Major research areas in my lab include:


(1) Input of terrigenous organic matter into the ocean: A large…

Living organisms depend on the environmental conditions and shape their surroundings. The study of these interactions in aquatic environments using process-based models is the overarching theme in our …

BILL IN A NUTSHELL


My research is in biogeochemistry and marine photochemistry, examining its integrated role in carbon and trace gas cycling, ocean optics, reactive oxygen species and metal redox chemistry, and the biological consequences of all this. I blend…

Research in the Moran Lab focuses on the role of marine bacteria in the productivity of the coastal ocean and the formation and flux of climate-relevant gases. We use molecular biology, genomic, and metagenomic approaches to investigate processes carried out by the…

Modeling Vertical Particle Flux in the Oceans


the oceans are by definition filled with water, particulate material plays many important roles in the biogeochemistry and ecology of the oceans. Most of the particulate organic material in the…

We study the ecology and physiology of photosynthetic organisms in the ocean. Our lab focuses on phytoplankton, the unicellular algae that are responsible for nearly all photosynthesis in the ocean, and corals, which create coral reefs. Our general goal is to…

Students in the Yager lab work on research projects ranging across the subjects of marine microbial ecology, seawater carbonate chemistry, and climate change.   Recent field work has taken place in the Amundsen Sea, Antartica; coastal Barrow, Alaska; and the Amazon…
