Current Courses

  • The Environmental Biogeochemistry Laboratory (EBL) focuses research on biogeochemical processes revolving around phosphorus (P) under three axes: i) P as an essential nutrient for all living beings, ii) P as a contaminant to open waters, and iii) P as a biocidal agent (e.g., herbicide). EBL research is carried over a trillion-fold scale range, from chemical bond formation/cleavage to micro-macro scale processes in soil and sediment and to landscape and ecosystem processes. The ecosystem-scale research seeks to address questions on source, sink, transformation, and internal cycling of phosphorus in terrestrial and coastal environments.
