Research questions are focused on using ozone impregnated nano bubbles to reduce or eliminate water column/sediment nutrients, especially P and N, that affect HAB growth and proliferation. We are also interested in the role metals play in this process. Working with membrane infused mass spectrometry (MIMS) we wish to establish fate of these nurtrients over time establishing mass balance before, during and after ozone/nano bubble (NBOT) treatment.
