AOML’s nutrient group focuses on the biogeochemical cycles of nutrient elements (N, P, Si) in the coastal and open ocean environments. We are particularly interested in the anthropogenic input of nutrients to the coastal oceans and its effect on the coastal ecosystems. Current research includes (1) biogeochemical cycles of the nutrients as coupled with carbon and oxygen in the open oceans, (2) sediment-water exchange of phosphorus in marine environments, (3) long-term monitoring of nutrient cycling in estuaries and bays, (4) the effect of  land-source nutrient discharge on the coastal ecosystem, and (5) method and instrument development to measure nanomolar levels of nutrients in oligotrophic waters.
