FSU Plankton Ecology and

Biogeochemistry Lab


I have ongoing research projects in regions as diverse as the California Current Ecosystem, the Southern Ocean, New Zealand, and the Gulf of Mexico, as well as continuing efforts to synthesize cruise results from the Costa Rica upwelling dome, the Amazon River Plume region, and the Eastern Equatorial Pacific. For specifics on each of these projects, click on the links to the left.


This portion of our website is specifically designed to showcase our research for other oceanographers.  If you would like a broader overview of our work that was designed to be more accessible to the general public, please click on the 'Outreach' link on the top right.
