1) Use and further development of the eddy correlation technique for measuring fluxes in the benthic environment. See my web site for details. 2) Applied modeling of transport phenomena and biogeochemical processes in the benthic environment.

My biogeochemical research includes investigations on the natural and anthropogenic controls on chemical cycles at the watershed, regional and global scales. I started first with trace metal biogeochemistry of the…
