Peat mosses of the genus Sphagnum play a major role in global carbon storage and predominate over photosynthetic production in many northern peatland ecosystems, which are currently being subjected to some of the most rapid climate change on Earth.
The oceanic DOC pool is comparable to the carbon inventory in both atmospheric CO2 and in the total biomass on earth.
ABSTRACT: Previous work on the Georgia, USA coast revealed consistent mid-summer peaks in the abundance of Thaumarchaeota accompanied by spikes in nitrite concentration. We collected data on the distribution of Thaumarchaeota, ammonia-oxidizing Betaproteobacteria (AOB), nitrite-oxidizing Nitrospina, environmental variables and rates of ammonia oxidation during 6 cruises in the South Atlantic Bight from April to November 2014 to evaluate the areal extent and timing of the bloom. The abundance of Thaumarchaeota marker genes (16S rRNA and amoA) increased at inshore and nearshore stations st
Submarine groundwater discharge (SGD) is a process defined as any and all input of water into a surface water body through the sediment - water interface, independent of the driving force, and the fluid source and composition.
Please join us for the 2017 Research Symposium on June 1-2 at the Graduate Hotel in Athens, Ga. The symposium will highlight Georgia Sea Grant’s research program, where Sea Grant-funded scientists from across the state will share their research findings. A reception will follow.
On day two, prospective researchers are invited to a workshop where we will provide an overview of our FY2018-2020 call of proposals and give tips and advice about preparing a strong application. Registration is required.
Please email Angela Llewllayn at firstname.lastname@example.org by May 25 to RSVP.
The purpose of this seminar is to begin with a general overview of the shelf and end with the carbonate reefs.
Developing Acoustic Instruments for Measuring Flow velocity and Sediment Concentration in Rivers and Coastal Waters
About the presentation: "The presentation is organized as follows. At first, the experimental works I carried out during my PhD studies to explore tide-driven influential parameters on sediment transport in Ota Diversion Channel, Hiroshima, Japan, are briefly described. This part mainly discusses the application of conventional acoustic systems, their abilities, and challenges that inspired me to start working on Shallow Acoustic Tomography technique.
