My research involves exploring nutrient cycling in kelp forest ecosystems, with an emphasis on the carbon cycle. Using a variety of methodologies, including satellite observation, I study the physical and biotic controls on carbon delivery, uptake and export from this ecosystem and expand these results to larger temporal and spatial scales. The long term and extensive datasets of the SBC LTER will allow for a better understanding of carbon cycle variability in the kelp forest and help expose changes due to oceanographic cycles and climate change.
