Centre for Coastal Biogeochemistry Research

TOP ERA RANKING OF 5.0 IN 0402 GEOCHEMISTRY

The Centre for Coastal Biogeochemistry Research is a major contributor to SCU's 0402 Geochemistry area, which received the top ERA rating of 5.0 (outstanding performance well above world standard).

Overview

The Centre undertakes research on the Global Change issues of nutrient over-enrichment (Eutrophication), ocean acidification, climate change, greenhouse gases and hypoxia. We work in estuaries, rivers and catchments, nearshore coastal waters, mangroves, seagrasses, salt-marshes, wetlands, muds, permeable sands and coral reefs. Our research tools include stable isotopes, process measurements, automated instrumentation, experimental manipulations, material mass balances and ecosystem modelling and comparatives studies.
