"Organic Matter Biogeochemistry at the Land-Ocean-Atmosphere Interfaces"

Dissolved Black Carbon

We (myself and Patrick Hatcher from ODU) are excited to have¬†recently been awarded funding from the National Science Foundation’s Low Temperature Geochemistry Program in collaboration with the lead PI, Andy Zimmerman from the University of Florida, and co-PI, Siddhartha Mitra from East Carolina University.¬†


The Western Atlantic Climate Study (WACS) seeks to understand the role of marine sea spray aerosol in the Earth’s radiative budget. Our group recently participated in the WACS-2 cruise in the western North Atlantic aboard the R/V Knorr.
