Background

General: Research centred on BioGeochemical Cycles (BGC) and marine ecosystems in the ocean. Aim to develop original and innovative research to understand biogeochemical biological and physical interactions. Particularly those which affect marine costal environment, including their productivity, carbon export and the response of these processes to external perturbation, climate variability climate change, ocean acidification. Include the use and development of simple to most advanced numerical models, Lagrangian models, remote sensing data and the use of in situ data.

Specific: Development of numerical simulations of Great Barrier Reef (Australia Coral Sea). Those models are designed to address the impacts of flood events on the water quality of the whole region (high resolution 3D circulation model with sediment and biogeochemistry processes, including N, P 1 cycle, sediment interactions ad benthic communities). Impact of Ocean Acidification on coral reef systems, numerical water circulation model of Heron Island reef (Great Barrier reef, South East Queensland) including full carbon chemistry to asses the reef health in collaboration with a in situ data collection project. Geoengineering project to explore the feasibility of small-scale chemical and biological buffering to mitigate ocean acidification, numerical experiments will simulate the addition of alkalinity and macroalgae communities.



Current Projects:

  • eReefs :a platform that provides a picture of what is currently happening on the reef, and what will likely happen in the future
  • eReefs web site

  • Biological buffering of ocean acidification
  • Carbon Cluster
