I study the biogeochemical dynamics of beach groundwater; specifically, how beaches function as import areas of organic matter mineralization and nutrient transformation and/or removal. These processes may be important for the maintenance of coastal primary production and ecological stability. The SBC-LTER provides long-term data on kelp primary production and watershed nutrient loading to the ocean, which allows a more complete relative understanding of the importance of beaches to the maintenance of coastal ecological integrity.
